We're building a new home and have a gas fireplace in the master bedroom. It will have a stone facing and wood mantle. The bedroom will have wall-to-wall carpet, and we'd planned to run it up to the bottom edge of the stone facing, but I'm second guessing myself. Would it be better to have a stone hearth flush with the carpet to which it would run? Obviously this isn't necessary with this sort of insert, but I'm wondering if it makes it look more authentic, or is just a matter of preference.
