I find that in my busy house-hold it's easier for me to change diapers in the living room close to the action, rather than taking the baby to another room.
This is the set-up that works great for me - in fact, I don't even have a changing station other than this:
At this post:
*The basket holds six or eight each, of two sizes of diaper for each girl.
*Next to the basket is my box of wipes
*On the other side of this basket I also keep a zippered bag of hair fixin's, and a water squirt bottle, since I find it makes sense to fix hair when I change diapers first thing in the morning.
Depending on the time of year, here are some other things I keep handy in this basket or bag:
*a Snurfer (alias: nasal aspirator).
*some Q tips in a zip lock.
I keep this basket in the living room (in my house it sits on the fireplace hearth, which is where I gravitate to change a diaper).
I also keep one in my bedroom downstairs where the babies sleep.
Let me know if this tip will come in handy at your house too!
