Speaker setup for this room

Hi all

I am in the process of building a home and not sure about the best (if any) sound setup I should implement in my main living area.

I have attached my floor plan and some 3d images on the links below:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

Basically there's an entrance (3m high ceiling) that leads into a living area on the right (6m high void) and another area on the left (3m high ceiling). The dashed line in the floor plan is just to show separation of the two areas (different heights), this isn't a wall, it's all open. I've also shown a section of what the TV wall looks like. I have to maintain min. 300mm clearance from the fire place.

Absolutely no idea what to do here, I know it's not an ideal room for sound, but any suggestions would be better than audio directly out of the TV. I need it to look aesthetically pleasing too, so placing floor standing speakers around the room isn't an option for us.

Love to hear your thoughts!

Not that hard for the most part. Left and right speakers sitting in the book shelves. Center speaker on the ledge under the TV. Right and left surround speakers on (or in) the walls to the sides of the couch, eight feet up. If you want 7.1, two speakers on (or in) the back wall facing the back of the sofa, ~six feet up. If your build has some flexibility, make the lower two front cabinets large enough to fit a subwoofer inside on each side. It’s going to take a couple of big ones to fill that room.
