Polish almost always starts this kind of sentence with the location. Your sentence looks like a calque of the English word order.

Allow 'Jest metalowy koszyk w moim pokoju.'

while technically correct, this sentence has a rare word order. we do not like leaving verb at the beginning or the end of the sentence, and it is easily avoidable here.
