Hi I am building new house theatre is 6m long and 4m wide. As per attached plan there will be front, Center, sub, 1 ceiling pair for atmos 1 side surrounds pair and 1 rear surround pairs for 7.1.2 . (all surrounds at 1.5m height).
I am seeking option whether to turn rear surrounds into rear ceiling atmos to 5.1.4 as some people suggests is better setup than 7.1.2, and will be less clutter in the wall,. However I am not sure if that suits my room, Alternatively this can be mounted as rear presence speaker but at what height?
If I am going 5.1.4 what should be the distance of side surround from rear wall/corner?

This is my first post, so sorry if it rambles on a bit, just trying to give a full and clear picture. I have been doing a lot of reading here and have picked up a lot of fantastic info....I do have a a few questions relating to an upgrade I am considering and I'm hoping some of you may be able to assist with setting me straight because the more I read the more confused I am getting.
What I have -
The system I have currently is a Pioneer VSX-919AH with 58" 4k display. Room size is 7m x 5m, with MLP in the centre of the 7m rear wall
4 front speakers - Dali AXS5000 and some large mid 70s vintage 3-ways which were my Fathers. I know some might say I prob shouldn't run the 4 fronts but it is a sentimental thing. A Klipsch Centre channel, Klipsch Quintet III surrounds (about to be upgraded to Klipsch C2 and S2's - already purchased along with some F2's at a great price, just waiting on delivery) and 2 Klipsch Sub-10's - one at either end of the couch, approx 6.5m apart with MLP central to that and an old Cerwin-Vega Sub LW-10X, central at the front of the room, beneath the display.
As I'm using A+B, I have to forego the Surround backs and since I have no Pre-outs I can't use an external amp.
I will add, that I am perfectly happy with the current setup but I would like to make it more expansive, for no other reason I guess, than because I can.
What I would like to achieve -
I would like to be able to continue using A+B but also include Surround Backs and some height channels, 2-4 or maybe expand to 6 at a later time (I have space to install in-wall or external Surround Back's and in-ceiling speakers).
I have looked at posts on AVS Forum about 'Franken-Atmos' and 'Scatmos' setups which I find very interesting but also confusing as I do not have the technical electronics knowledge to know which receiver's will perform the certain functions I need. That being said, I am open to any suggestions.
What I'm considering - but open to suggestions
Pioneer SC-LX89 (13.2ch Pre-outs, 3xHDMI out)
Denon AVR-4400H (11.2ch Pre-outs, 3xHDMI out)
Both support Dolby Surround which appeals to me for non-Atmos content up-mixing.
Some of my questions:
1 - If I upgrade to one of the above AVR's - can I use one of the HDMI outs - into the Pioneer VSX-919AH, to use as an external amp, running the 'B' or even 'A+B" speakers?
2 - or - If I use the Pre-outs, to an external Amp or the old AVR, does this disable the internal amplification to the corresponding speaker posts?
Any advice or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Long time lurker, first time poster!
moving into a new place shortly as pictured below, this will be the living room space i will have my HT setup.
dimensions 5.8m long x 3.7m wide with open plan to kitchen and dining area behind camera.
ideally i would like to have a 7.1.4 setup(sub woofer to come) in the room, this may however not be ideal or be possible given where the furniture will be placed(same as pictured)
i would like opinions on how you would set this room up for greatest audio experience.
biggest concerns are
a. placement of side and rear surround ( i would like a good rear sound stage if possible O_O)
b. best options for Atmos ceiling speaker placement options( speakers to be purchased )
Yamaha RX-A3070 receiver
PSB Image 5.0 setup (Towers/Centre/bookshelf) + 2 x PSB bookshelf and C40 centre.
