Moving home - Need acoustic advice! Plugin Presets/Expansions

Moving home - Need acoustic advice!

Hey guys, I'm moving house and I've decided I'm gonna go all out with my next setup and make sure acoustics are as good as they can be. I've never really gone into detail, and I'm a bit clueless when it comes to acoustic treatment so all the advice is welcome!

I'm based in the UK, so I'm going to be purchasing a room kit from GIK Acoustics. (I've watched some DIY panel videos on youtube but I'd rather avoid the hassle).

What I plan to do in the room is record vocals + mix and master. A booth is not ideal, as I hate isolated booths and would prefer to record in any part of the room.

Here's the room I want to treat, and a diagram of the plan too with how I want to set it up:

My problem is the weird little window area, it would've been much easier to treat if it was just a rectangle.

The room size is 13ft by 11ft and I'll be recording sitting at my desk...

What do you recommend?


Here's an idea of what I'm thinking so far?

How does this look? What else do I need?

If you are buying from GIK, take advantage of their free advice. Yes, I said FREE!
There are a few (maybe more than a few) people in this Forum who can create a workable studio acoustic plan. And I am not one of them. I have dealt with GIK for a number of years and find them honest, knowledgeable, and willing to work within whatever budget you have.
Unless you have a pro level knowledge of studio design, don’t do your own design work. You won’t get it right until about the fifth time you do it, and you will waste money on choices the pros would avoid. I see some obvious errors in your plan, but see what GIK thinks.
