Front corner traps. Reflective, or not?

Not much HF I would think is going to end up in the front corners, is it? So, would anyone bother making these particular traps reflective? I have some left over pine that I could use by applying some horizontal slats in a MLS sequence to them. I reckon this would look cool, better than all fabric, but would it be of any real use in terms of staving off the dreaded dead room syndrome? Thanks.

How is anyone to know the current room response? Even a photo would allow at least a guess.

Cool

While the sound from speaker to listener will not be affected,
sounds emanating from people in the room will bounce off the slats. This eliminates some of the psychoacoustic effect of a 'dead' room. Also sound bouncing from the back of the room will get returned later and a bit broken up by the slats.
All good I reckon.
