Possibly the best thing in a darkroom after an enlarger and trays, is a grain focuser.

I've used all sorts from ones costing hundreds of dollars in a lab, to my personal one which I paid $5.00 secondhand.

Paterson Micro Focus Finder which is in the above link, is the one I use on a daily basis in my own dark room.

By the way, welcome to the forum.
