Corner Fireplace Design Assistance

last month

Attached is a picture of my unfinished gas right corner fireplace. This is a replacement unit for one that was previously in the same spot - we could not move the fireplace to another part of the wall due to structural issues.

I'm looking for suggestions:

  1. Should I leave it at its current height or lower it?
  2. What material should I use for the surround? The unit only requires non-combustible material 6 inches on the top of the unit
  3. Hearth or no hearth (I was thinking a hearth that extends about 2 feet past the fireplace on the left side)


  • Crown Moulding
  • Corner unit - next to French doors

I prefer a simple/minimalist design if possible.

Thank you for your feedback!
