Raised fireplace hearth or no hearth?

Raised hearth will reduce small great room floor space but looks more traditional with firebox. I've included two mock-ups. One raised, one not. Any advice?

it looks ever so much better without the raised hearth. the lines of the room are cleaner and the fireplace looks more traditional :)

I like it better without the raised hearth. Like the person before said, it is much cleaner. The only time I would go for a raised hearth would be when you have enough space to go beyond the fireplace and have it as as seating area. In your case, you have the doors on each side, so the extension would not work.
