Possible monitor setup in my bedroom

Hi people,

After producing on headphones for two years I'd really like to upgrade to studio monitors. But I can't figure out how I could place my gear in my room which is not symmetrical at all. I have read that buying monitors for a room which hasn't the right accoustics does not pay out. What would you suggest to do?

My room is about 4 x 6 meters with a angled roof. I added two pictures below.

Kind regards,

I would use the same way you're set up right now to be honest.

Try to find a spot that will allow you to place treatment symmetrically, and try to sit in the middle of the room. Do you have an omni microphone?

Hi Johan,

I've tried this setup with Yamaha HS5's. I had the feeling that they lacked quite a lot of bass and I thought this was because they where not placed against any wall. I had them placed on the corners of my desk. That's why I thought I needed another setup than I have now. But if I place the monitors closer to the wall, how will that angled wall affect the sound? Will it help?

And no unfortunately I don't have an omni microphone.
