Advice on new room with vaulted ceiling

Hi all.
Long time reader, first time poster!
We've bought a new home and the room for my theater doesn't have the most ideal layout, but it's workable.

We've haven't moved in yet, but I've been planning what to do.
Not sure on the exact measurements, but it's roughly 5.7 meters X 4.5 meters.

I'm looking to have the TV on the wall where the ceiling is the highest, with the rear speakers on the wall is the lowest.

I've roughly drawn (MS paint) the layout.

I've also (with a laptop and paint) draw on some pictures of where things will roughly go. There's a small doorway I'll be closing out with plasterboard next to the TV.

Does anyone have any recommendations on mounting/hanging side surrounds from vaulted ceiling beams?

My gear is:

Sharp 70" LCD
Paradigm Studio 100 fronts
Paradigm CC-590 centre with stand
Rears and surround backs: Jensens X1's

Also, would be great to eventually get two overheads for atmos. I know with vaulted ceilings this can be a pain.
Just looking for any general advice and feedback on what I'm planning...

If you looking ceiling mounts for speakers you will find several options. I found these online but cannot vouch for them:

Amazon is a good source for wall and ceiling mounts.

However, I think the surround are a little bit high on the walls. Many people recommend that surround speakers be about 1 meter above the listening position or approximately 2 meters from the the floor. I would put the rear surrounds lower on the wall if possible. You don't have a lot of options on the side surrounds.

In that room I would place the rear surrounds wider apart and angled towards the listening position approximating a 5.1 configuration and use the sides as your atmos speakers. SVS recommends this setup with their elevation speakers. I have read that atmos may not be ideal with vaulted ceilings but I think that is the mainly the case if you are using upfiring speakers. If you are concerned about the vaulted ceilings, you may want to check out the Auro 3D configurations, but they also have some limitations; the main one being a lack of material that is native Auro 3d.
