Room 1 (carpet floor)


or
Room 2 (hard wood floor)


Perhaps a better questions would be which one is easier to treat to get to an optimal level?

I'm considering Adam 7 monitors or Yamaha HS80s (I'll look into other monitors tomorrow)

I've seen a version of the hardwood floor room treated to create an awesome recording space, but it was much larger. Like Basketball Court large. The carpeted room will sound a little more lifeless but be more forgiving.

This info is taken from experiencing the design of the practice rooms at a large University Music department.

I think I would opt for room 1, lack of exact symmetry and also maybe you can liven the floor up if need be. Carpet can be useful to deaden foot tapping etc. Good luck with it.
