Recently when I´ve been kinda going back and forth with floorstand and bookshelf speakers that I have, I´ve noticed that the Floorstands tend to take lot´s of room themselves to get them sound good. I´m not really comfortable with having my floorstands so nearfield that they have to be and the bass still sounds kinda mushy. My bookshelfs care a-lot less for positioning in the room, but I think so far they sound the best nearfield too. Problem here also is that the room “main size” that I´m working with is quite small.(5.50m X 3.30m X 2.50m) The room extends to kinda L shape so left wall is extended to another room part in rear left. I have few basstraps in room which are filling my doorway because that seems to kinda effect to the issues that the longest wall in my apartment is causing.
So I´m thinking what´s the practical solution for me to get most of out of the room/system? (I don´t have much budget to work with since I´m a fulltime uni student).

You are trying to find the best speaker position in an untreated room. This is a difficult if not impossible task. You must minimize the room distortion issues through treatment before you can correctly place the speakers.
thanks for answering, I do have some treatment for first reflection points and rear reflections though true that I still have some quite amount of empty wall space, the front wall is empty of treatment.
