I would like to install a niche above a fireplace but I have not been able to determine the right size and scale to have it astatically pleasing. The wall is 54"w x 96"h, the fireplace is 36"w x 27"h centered and the mantle is 50" from the floor. I would like to place a nich above the mantle. from an architectural point of view what would be an appropriate size of the niche.
