Corner sofas and seating are great for small spaces – they can accommodate many people and little space, and you can have storage space inside. It can be ordinary wooden seating with a few cushions and pillows, or a modern, stylish upholstered sofa with additional storage space. The design, colors and appearance depend on the style of your outdoor space. You can make such seating yourself, there are many do-it-yourselfers to choose from.
You can find common sofas and loveseats with different designs and decorations to choose from. Wood, wicker, string are great materials to choose from.

You can even make a seat like this yourself and save some money in the process.
A fireplace is always a centerpiece that makes the room cozier and more welcoming no matter where you place it, however you decorate it. Surrounding your working or even non-working fireplace with metal will give it a unique look. Metal gives the room a textural touch that creates more interest and of course it attracts everyone around you. Do you want some ideas? Let's check them out below!
Colors and textures
Metal that surrounds your fireplace can be of different colors and also of different textures. It will easily highlight your decor style or make a bold statement if that's what you want. It can be a sleek and shiny metal-clad fireplace, an aged and textured, blackened metal fireplace, and there are many more ideas - this usually depends on the style of your room, for example a sleek metal fireplace will fit a minimalist room while a aged textured copper room will be a good idea for a mid-century modern living room. You can experiment with copper, steel, and other metals and look to match or contrast with your color scheme and style.
Decor and use
Make your metal-clad fireplace great and take a whole wall with you - it will be your statement in the room. Opt for a double-sided room to separate the rooms and give both cosiness and a warm feeling. Create some built-in niches for firewood, even if the fireplace is not working, they will add coziness. Skip the mantels or leave them unadorned - fireplaces surrounded by metal are usually more laconic. Get inspired!
