    Enlarger in bedroom help needed

    Hello everyone! Im setting up an enlarger in the only space i have and that happens to be my bedroom. I will build a table that will had 3 12x16 trays on the right side in front of the window but will need to enclose the area and make it light tight. Of course i will be sealing the 2 windows of light and want to hopefully enclose the area with a light tight cloth of some kind that can attach with Velcro or zippers. Has anyone experienced a situation like this before?

    Hello Jim, and welcome to APUG.

    Your very bright looking bedroom looks like a bit of a challenge, but it can be done.

    You may find some assistance in this thread as well: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum43/4...darkrooms.html

    The Nova darkroom tent may be a simple solution. You can google it for more info.

    I use jet black felt. Works great and is cheap at discount fabric stores.

    You can set up a "grow tent" made for hydroponics. These are supposed to be light-tight, although the inside is usually white or reflective.

    My first darkroom was in my bedroom. I got some thick black plastic sheets, cut them to the size of my windows and attached them with velcro. Worked perfectly most of the time. In high summer I found the heat from the sun could melt the glue on the velcro and the blackout would fall down. I used to fold up the plastic sheets when not in use and after a few years they developed pinholes at the folds. I also once left some chemistry in an open tray and went to bed - I had a rotten headache the next day.
