Let the fireplace float. By placing windows around the fireplace (and placing the metal chimney on the outside) there's little to block the light and view so the interior stays more open and bright. The fireplace seems to float in the wall rather than being anchored to one spot by a heavy masonry chimney.

The ottoman as a footrest. Many people love to stretch their legs out when sitting. Whether they are reading a book watching TV or simply resting or napping people like to elevate their feet and legs. The biological effect is to reduce the stress on the heart in pumping blood up through the non-return valves in the veins of their legs by keeping your legs raised your heart has less work to do and you consequently use less energy so can relax easier. The padded top of an ottoman permit you to do this comfortably and many use this type of furniture with their recliner rather than use the footrest that comes with the furniture.

Accent pieces. While ottomans are footrests seats and storage containers they can also be used as accent pieces that pick out a color in your décor and display it is bright vivid color. In fact it can scream out to everybody in the room "Look At Me!" - I am beautiful so don't ignore me. Ring a bell? Ottomans can be used as occasional furniture for storage of these ugly bits and pieces you need in your room but want hidden and as an extravagant item of furniture showing itself off.

Painted brick. An option I have used often painted brick works every time. If you are longing to update your old red brick but are short on budget paint your brick. Any color can work but white works with so many different styles. Modern rustic and coastal all work with a painted fireplace. If the bricks are being installed new your project can cost $2.000 to $5.000 for raw materials and installation. (Read this before attempting it yourself though).
