Fireplace with a raised hearth or not?I'm redoing a the family. I'm afraid that the raised hearth could overpower the space. The space opens into the kitchen area - great space. Attached is an example of the raised hearth and similar space. The only difference is that the fireplace will be on the opposite side and the area will be open.November 24 2012 - US0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
