Ideal Room Dimensions: When Is It Actually Worth Optimizing Ratios?

setting up a new studio

If you’re setting up a studio in a new room, or you’re thinking of switching to a different room, you’ve probably come across the idea of ideal room dimensions or optimizing ratios.

And maybe you’re actually in a position where you’re seriously considering putting in a new wall or reducing the ceiling height to do that.

But is it actually always worth it at all costs, just because you have the option?

Or are there scenarios where it’s better to just leave the room dimensions as they are, even though you could change them?

In this video I want to show you what you need to consider to make that decision, when it’s worth optimizing the dimensions in your new studio, and when not.

And for those cases where you decide that it is actually worth it, I’ll tell you the two key things you need to get right to make sure it works as predicted.
