General question re treatment of small, wide and shallow room

hey gang!

I’m moving flats tomorrow and finally have a separate room for the home studio. It’s wide and shallow, perfectly rectangular. The doors prevent me from using this room as a long one, so it's wide, and it's shallow.

I’ve tried to find resources re how to treat this specific kind of room shape/orientation, but am having no luck. Most info I’ve found is for long and narrow rooms.

I’ve currently got 2 absorbers and a cloud i'm bringing over from the current setup, but I believe I’ll need a couple traps for the corners, and something for the back wall… not sure if absorber or diffuser is the move. I’ll be upgrading in stages, but I guess any resources or tips are welcome :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance for any tips.
FWIW i make mostly electronic music, some downtempo/jazz influence beat stuff, do my own mixing but not my own mastering.
