How to make an effecient darkroom : LUSENET : Photographers Communicating : One Thread

Hi, I took a B&W photography class last year at a local community colledge and found it extremely interesting. I now want to get more creative and process my film at home. I'd like to know if someone has some tips on how to make a darkroom out of a spare bedroom with no running water it there. Any ideas ?

Forget the bedroom. You will spill chemicals and they make a real mess. Try using the bathroom. You can put the trays in the tub and if you spill it will go down the drain. You can put the enlarger on a roll a round table in the bathroom or if nearby the bedroom use the bedroom as the dry side and do the wet stuff in the bathroom.
