Treating room with mirror closets

Hi Gearslutz!

I've recently moved into a new place and want to build my studio in this room. The whole room is about 140 sq ft

From my research, the problems seem to be:

- The ceiling
- The cube shape of the room
- One of the walls is entirely sliding glass doors which means no matter which direction I orient my workstation, I need to figure out how to address the reflections from the mirrors.

I have the option of purchasing the Primacoustic whole room treatment from Sweetwater (link below) as they offer 48 month financing. Only problem with that will be that I can't mount the bass traps as any side I do it on will either incur a closet door or the entrance to the room.

What's the best thing I can do under $1,000 in this room to address the closet but still have reasonable access to my clothes? I was thinking my only option is gobos on wheels that I can put into position in front of the mirrors during work sessions. Also keep in mind that I can move the workstation anywhere in the room, that's no problem. All help is deeply appreciated!

Face the mirrors. That puts them behind the speakers, where they at least are not the initial strong bounce. But every surface in that room is like a dull mirror. You have flat, opposed surfaces on all sides of a box.
IMO you should not buy the primacoustic kit. I like the company and own some of their products, but the room kits are a lot of show and less go, if you understand my meaning.
Read in this forum. Learn about REW and use it to efficiently apply treatment to correct your room. Look at how people do corner stacks and clouds. Spend your money on one thing at a time. Eventually you will get the whole room treated effectively.
