I put a post in the renovations area which is likely more appropriate here. Have a look and see what you guys think.

Both are nice, and which is preferrable depends on the overall aesthetic of the room and house. The left is more stately, but may not be appropriate for a more transitional look of the right. There is a little jog on the marble tile on the right that bothers me -- it's maybe 1/16-1/8 in., or could just be the photo. I do like the more open feel of the right hearth.

I scoped 'em out. I have to tell you the one on the left makes NO sense at all.

It's too close to the door for openers. And any surround like that would occupy a place of importance in a room... certainly NOT next to a door. And not a door with that configuration.

MY opinion, nothing more.
