My darkroom is a converted bedroom next to my actual bedroom and no problems so far after nearly 10 years

I worked out fume issues with my small laundry room DR. Use fresh developer, bromide buildup has a little odor. Use a water stop or weak citric stop. Use an alkaline fix. Keep the house HVAC fan circulating and move in and out as you place completed prints in a hold try outside the DR. You could also cover the slots between prints.
