Mine sits in a small room / closet under the stairs, in an on-purpose
built for this. But it is a little cramped with the current amount of
equipment I have.

I do not believe there are any standards applicable to this, though I've
sometimes wondered if someone should write a guideline document for
recommendations concerning what kind of setup makes sense from a long
term perspective. Cat6, tubing to be able to replace even those, enough
space & ventilation for the equipment, power, etc. I chose to put my IT
equipment in a different utility room than the electrical/heating/etc
equipment. In most new houses the two are in the same room.
Here's some more information on what i did & some pictures:
