Urgent:: Need to decide hearth height tonight!
We are having a fireplace installed tomorrow. I need to decide the hearth height tonight. What is a good height? My designer suggested around 9-10 inches. Here are a few specifics to our situation:
Our fireplace is going in the corner between a window seat and a shelf for a TV. Our ceilings are 8 feet. We want to have a stone veneer on the surround and wood mantel. Our firebox is 41" wide, but we plan to overlap the metal frame by a total of 5 inches; so the firebox opening will be 36". Our surround will be 12" wide on each side.
