My room...how should i arrange it?

http://oi47.tinypic.com/2vlqphf.jpg So you walk in, you see my room and go around my dresser, and see my bed with a window and curtain, then you can see a beam with a window behind my bed (dresser is like a foot away) then you move and you see this.

my door, my one monitor there *which gets hit by one of my family members that 'forgets' it's there.

and heres my set up, with my painting, and the wood floors, bouncing everywhere i almost always have to put my headphones on, and i cannot afford to acousticly treat my room, but you go over a foot and my closet is right there then a wall, then you move over and you see the window with the air conditioning....

What should i do to make my room acousticly 'better' besides buying foam or building something that causes me to go to home dept....will i HAVE to? I'm going to be 18 in a month or so and i want to buy a new PC....but i am also moving and going to graduate by the end of this year and hopefully move to my grandmas carpeted house.

Suggestions are welcomed, i really don't know the dimensions of my room because there are so many corners and the ceiling is about 12-14 feet high...

Thanks guys, im pretty confused... lol. I'm an 18 year old on a really tight budget...these monitors and isolation pads were a gift...sorry if i sound so misinformed

Re: My room...how should i arrange it?

Your Table's facing the wrong way. You should point your monitors in the direction of the longer part of the room (ie. 90 degrees to how they are now. This may be an issue for you because of your bed, but I can't be positive because your drawing sucks.

Throw in some furniture if you can afford it, make some treatment (its cheap to make), bookshelves are good, anything that breaks up the flat edges. This has all been covered before.

And by turn your monitors 90 degrees, I obviously mean the whole table and setup, and push it up to where your bed appears to be, if you can shift stuff around enough.

As you can see by the other pictures, my monitors are shifted 90 degrees and my desk is right beside my door, not really in front of it...it's on the wall and directly behind is my bed, like 3 feet away then literally a foot away is my dresser, then you go down and it corners and you see the window..my bed is pushed up against it...then a corner, then about 6 feet or so away is the other window with the AC, then a foot or 2 by that is my closet, then again my DAW, door.

Oh, my drawing sucks? YA DON'T SAY?! lol

Re: My room...how should i arrange it?

Can bed fit by window and closet? Then put DAW where bed was (away from wall/window a bit) and point monitors lengthwise in the room at your new bed spot? Block your closet if you need to

Re: My room...how should i arrange it?

its really hard to help from the information youve given. i know youve tried, but the birdseye doesnt seem to match up with the pictures.

the first and most important thing i would suggest though is to put a sign on your door saying in big bold letters, "mind the fuckin monitors!", or something along those lines.

if you can borrow a tape measure and measure the walls and tell us when theres an angle and which way that would help one of us build a replica for you. and measure the hight too.

I shall get one, but it's like theres my door, and theres a chunk of the wall missing around there, then theres a water connection that can go to a hose and my light switch *because i guess this was an old apartment* then the bigger section of the wall goes for around 6 feet or so, then it corners off again and then theres a gap there then you see the chinese picture i have on the floor *the picture thats turned sideways* and thats where the beam, or where a corner is, then theres another one directly behind that, then the window, then about 3 feet from my window theres about 6 feet of wall then my other window, then 4 feet from that the closet, then the wall where my computer and such is..

When i mention cornering off, i mean like this see the corners? Sections are like 9 inches, then corners for about 6 inches...

You're spot on, though it's smaller and my monitors are equal length apart and the left monitor is about a foot away then theres my closet, then a wall for a few feet, then a window, then more wall and then about a foot of wall in between with a window there in the middle, then sections off for the same length, then that corner i mentioned....then 5 or 6 feet of wall where my dresser, that picture is, then a corner again where the door is, the door, then the wall with my DAW which is about 5 feet i'd say

So my everything is against something, the bed, a window..

i assumed the monitors were equally spaced so didnt bother with making them look even
your description after that blows my mind. maybe you could adjust that pic to work properly? or better still, give us dimensions and angles?

Haha, i think the most i can do is move my DAW where my bed is....though it'll be right by the window, not reflecting off of it along with the many gaps AND wood floors in my room....oh, my desk is wood too....isolation pads and monitors with stands...maybe pushing my matress against my window during the day would do xD but still, the monitors are right by the door, which is right by the bathroom, then my brothers room whos normal...and my sisters, then across my parents....

it's so much hassle...i want to move up to the attic xD

Re: My room...how should i arrange it?

pushing your mattress against the window would probably help a fair amount. cant hurt anyway. i think the most important thing at this point is to stop your monitor from being smashed about.

be patient, you will soon have your own place and will have more room to play with. when i was 18 i was using shitty separates with budget speakers and windows sound drivers, in a tiny little pretty much cube shaped box room. before that i was doing the same in my parents living room.
at this point do what you can (as you are) and hold your breath for the space.

just remember to have fun. even if the setup sounds shit it does not stop you from having fun. try to make it sound good in your room and forget about other rooms until youve got a better space.
for a while i was paying to have my music mixed by other people because of my setup. maybe consider that?

My matress is right behind me, moved it against the window...the bass before felt 'over my head' and now it's in the middle and it feels tons more balanced, also closed the blinds on my other window....put a blanket over my closet helped too, maybe putting something over my wooden dresser will help too

Wow, nevermind, i move two feet from my workstation, theres a closet, move again....another window, move few more feet, another window, move again, theres my dresser with a vent so if i move my monitors there, it'll be even louder and it'll be right by the little hot and cold water pipes i have right here, so either way im fucked.

Re: My room...how should i arrange it?

I had to get rid of my bed and get a futon to clear some room.
But,i still dont have enough room,i want my workstation further from the wall.
I forget i have a living room....duh...my dad is not here anymore,so ....
but in your case do what you can to both increase space and still be comfortable,and get good acoustics.
