You might want to go to the top of the page, and click on Search. Then type in Sewing rooms - there are tons of pics on here of great setups.

Do you really want to see the mess. PS there is a good book Quilting rooms try Amazon search aas I cannnot remember anythng else about it.
Phillippa Naylor a patchworker in England suggested that when you have the hole fitted in the worktop for the machine by hubby, make sure you can rest yoiur elbows on the worktop. this means it is situated further back than the manufactured cabinets. this stops your arms etc aching when quilting. look up her blog. you may find a picture of what I mean. if not do a Pm and will try to explain further.
Also look up ideas from Youtube quilting etc.

You people might get mad at me if you saw my sewing "studio". I had my basment finished off into a sewing studio. I can take some "as is" pictures.

Hmmm....when you said "quilting room" you threw me off for a moment. I have 2 small bedrooms to use...one is my "sewing room" with my fabric, sewing machines, etc., and the second is my "quilting room" which is where my quilting frame is.

You can see pics of my sewing room here:

And you can see pics of my quilting room here:

I have just repainted the quilting room and am finishing up putting up picture rail moulding today. I also have a new Hinterburg 3-rail quilt frame to put in there. When I am done I will take new pics of the quilting room.

I'm spread out all over the house, in two small bedrooms upstairs, and the attached garage downstairs.

But, it beats the RV (we fulltimed for 4 years) space I used to sew in!
