Matt - Ohhhh, I am liking this! I think I can have my cake and eat it too. What if I moved the larger enlarger to the SW nook like you thought and then on that nook, built a dry rack???!!! Seems like this would work. And it opens up the darkroom a bit more!
Think the Kodak box would be more table. Mod'ed the table with the hockey sticks of course to show a dry rack (note this rinky table wd never be in my actual darkroom):
Rear view, this would be wall:
The white hockey stick on ground on below photo would be door:
Humm...liking this, not as cramped!
