The grid is one of them and which can be used to creates dramatize photographs. The grid is quite cheap and can be attached to your softbox, the metal grid can be attached to your reflectors 

There are end numbers of modifier available in the market and can be used as per the shooting requirement. Even if you have captured the desired shot with xyz modifier then also you must try to re-capture the shot with different modifier and feel the difference and this exercise will improve your creativity along with perfect knowledge of using modifiers. I used to suggest to my students that you have must every kind of modifiers or a good collection of the modifiers into your studio or photography kit. One should also improve his/her modifier knowledge along with the camera setting etc. 
All the modifiers are available in all the different sizes in the market, choose as per your desired and start experimenting. This will convert you as a portrait photographer. 
Keep experimenting, Have wonderful and happy photography to you all.
