fireplace box ht. on hardwood floor?


I'm wondering how high the fireplace box opening needs to be off the hardwood floor.

Are there certain height requirements according to various flooring material?

If I add a stone or metal hearth that extends into the room can box opening be lower to the floor?

Thanks in advance for any help.
