Unless you're specifically trying to include ambient noise in a story or piece of content, we recommend recording somewhere quiet. Most non-industry audio creators don't have a tricked-out, soundproofed, acoustically-perfect home studio. You can tip the odds in your favor by retreating to the most quiet place in your home (smaller rooms, even closets, tend to work well).
Try to avoid larger spaces; those will create echo and an overall "hollow" sound.
If you’re feeling really adventurous, your car (without the engine running) can double as a studio. Cars are airtight and intimate, which can help you get some great-sounding content.
