My wife wanted to change or fireplace because it looks so small underneath our TV. So I built a hearth made from Walnut I milled. I used the cant for the mantle. I ripped plywood and painted it white for the shiplap which gives the fireplace a bigger feel as it extends just passed the TV. My wife is happy with it so I guess that’s all that matters.

It does add some scale to it now. A small something hanging above the tv might add some symmetry, but hard to get a feel for it looking at it sideways, may be just fine. ;-)
