Hi Louie,

Of course I do use safelights in the dark (red) part of my lab, one with an Ilford filter and one Osram Duka with an ecenomy lamp. I also have red bulbs (Philips) over the sink (trays) that I can switch on and off at will... The red colour is just meant to be useful for light leaks (there aren't any, but keep in mind that I am a sick minded person :-)...

As for the reflectance of the lighting, the red light emmited by the safe lights is 100% reflected on the red surface of the tiles, just as if they were white... Think about it...

Here are some pictures I made with a digital image capturing device:
There's the Dry side and the wet side of the red room, the stainless steel sink, the part of the white room used for print and film drying and the part used for print washing (and developing the films).
