I don\'t have a bright darkroom. I use a few small 5x7 housings that I\'ve collected cheap over the years to illuminate specific work areas and let the rest of the room be dark if the white lights are off.
Searching the floor is a little hard if I drop something, since there\'s little illumination outside the spots. But I never worry about fogging anything.
The Thomas Duplex safelight was a salvaged from my work place. It was 10 years ago when the university started closing darkrooms at reasearch labs. I also got an Arkay tumbling print washer too.
The safelight is good.
YMMV, but I think that print washer is an instrument of the devil.
