    I'm about to paint my new BW darkroom. It is 9x12 with 7'6" ceilings. Textured drywall. What color do you like?

    I've been in black darkrooms, grey DRs, white DRs. I have white now and it is fine, but dull. I've been thinking of painting the ceiling a midnight blue and then the walls either a warm white or neutral grey. I think too strong of a color on the wall might throw off the color in my prints, but I don't know. Only going to paint it once.

    Thanks

    If you are doing color work then for sure paint them black or neutral grey. If only B&W then GTO Judge Orange would be my choice.

    My darkroom is painted dark red Almost redbrown and I find with the orange/red light it gives the room a wonderful glow to work within. My print review area is med/dark grey so that I won't be fooled after drydown.

    Hmm... If a tree falls in a darkroom and no one is there to taste it, does it have a smell?

    How about wall paper? Do they make one with a photography theme? Maybe a pattern made out of digital cameras?

    I should have saved all my throw-aways and used them as wallpaper.

    You could always Just thumb tack all you negs to the walls. This would save neg starage space and you won't need neg sleeves anymore and just think all your negs are right there you could just pluck it from the wall and stick it in the enlarger!
