My workshop measures 17’ x 22’ with an additional 2’ x 9’ alcove (just under 400 square feet). That is enough if you strategically place your tools so you have adequate work areas around the tools. I have most of the standard wood working shop tools except a drum sander. I have designed my workshop so that I have logical and convenient storage space for everything. There really is a place for everything and (usually) everything is in its place.
With respect to most of my large stationary tools, I tend to buy tools that are at the limit of what you can run on 110 volts. I just don’t want to hassle with 220. I was originally a Jet fan but my 2 most recent purchases of substance are Grizzlys and I am becoming a Grizzly fan.
The surface of my workbench is bamboo flooring. I mention that because that is somewhat unusual. It is an amazingly tough and durable surface.
Not shown is the dust collection system. I use Rockler’s dust right system with ports on 8 different machines. I also have an air filtration unit overhead.
