Room set up

Recommended Posts

Hi Damien

I remember reading that you have a perfect room in your home to do your editing (an old sound room).I have read your article "The light around your computer" but I am wondering, if a person was starting out setting up an editing area for the first time, what other features do you recommend? e.g. Wall color?  Other equipment, desks etc. What is the perfect way to design a space and realizing that fire code requires windows.

Thank you.

Raging nerds will tell you that the walls must be perfect neutral grey, but that's so inhumane in my opinion.  As long as they're fairly neutral, it'll be fine - white or cream or very pale brown or whatever.

If a window is unavoidable, try to have good blockout curtains, and generally, I'd advise having it at the side of your seated position.  In front of you (behind the screen) will throw glare into your eyes, and behind you will throw glare onto your screen.

The position of the light globe/s is an interesting one.  I have a long fluro bulb, and after trying various positions, I found I liked it best when it was directly above my head.  Kinda the same principle as above - if it was in front of me it got in my eyes, if it was behind me it glared on the screen.

Desk?  Well, I love my standing desk.  But it's not for everyone, I'm sure.
