Advice on designing or building a recording space

If you're doing video recording be sure you have enough light. If you're bringing in light, you might want to make sure there is good circulation; those lights can get hot.  

Also, it is easier on the eyes and makes for a more interesting view if you have some type of backdrop - or interesting background (large bookshelf...). A talking head gets to be quite boring even if their story isn't.

Otherwise for just audio you need a quiet room.  

Cheers,
Kathy Klehr
