How much detail do you like on your dungeon maps?

The title says it all really, but to clarify, I'm talking about basic dungeon maps akin to those found in the Little Book of Dungeons (and the various Map-a-Monday maps).

Do you like them just the way they are (i.e. with just the immovable objects depicted e.g. walls/pillars/statues/wells/etc.) or do you prefer them to be fully furnished with barrels/tables/chests/etc.? (or perhaps somewhere in-between).

The reason I ask is because I'm in the process of putting something together that's similar to the Little Book of Dungeons (but this time working with smaller dungeon 'chunks' and supplying additional jpg images of these chunks for use with virtual table-tops), and I thought I'd see if anyone had a preference.

As an example, here's one of the 'chunks' (that only shows the immovable objects) that could be used for a throne room/great hall/chapel style area:

(note that if you load the full size version into Tabletop Forge at a size of 1400 x 1000 it should line up with the default grid size of 50)
