I have attached a pic with the layout. Any ideas would be appreciated.

That's the size of my memorabilia HT. Initially I was supposed to get the 15' x 25' room, but wife called it, so I got the smaller "front" room of our home. Still worked out nice though. Was able to get my memorabilia to fit, and make a nice little HT as well. You can see pics in the link in my sig.
Have to agree with alot of what sdurani said about seating, speaker, and TV placement. It's exactly what I've done with mine, except the sub is still seated in the front left corner, for now. Also, I agree with FendersRule on curtain panels. As for viewing distance, you'll be fine. 7'-8' back from the TV is totally doable in that size room.
