My room. Need Advice

My room. Need Advice

Hello guys,
I would need an advice for starting with acoustics treatment in my work room.
The room is 3.6mx3.2m with 3.3m height.

Two walls has windows with roller shades 80%. The desk window has double shade one 80% and a blackout behind, I don't know if that helps.

The other wall has the door (wood)
And finaly in front of the speakers/monitors I have full wall concrete bookshelf with concrete columns and wood shelfs and drawers. It is easy to put foam or other stuff on the back of each shelf over the wall, I think that a bookshelf is good for diffusion but shelf spaces are big so maybe it would be better to treat them also, don't know wich material could match with book's diffusion.

So if you could help me to determine which materials which size and where. I have a low budget so please do not suggest High End stuff, probably everything will be DIY.

I would appreciate an advice about placing a small vocal booth over the right speaker over the corner, and what would you put in that place for that purpose, that get's combined with the rest of the Acoustic treatment.

Thanks in advance for your help.
