I think you need to put it where it looks the best. If its going to be made of wood, make sure it is high enough above the opening.
Some large rooms with 15' ceilings may have it 6' from the floor, others lower. I don't think there is a standard? However, I'm no expert. You may check on the building codes in your area to see if there are any local requirements.
