Trying to plan for surround ceiling speakers for new home.

If things go to plan, I’ll be building a new home next spring. The main TV and music area will be a great room about 25’ x 20’ and planning on Polk 707’s for the mains.

I’m going to attempt to post a photo of the floor plan. I’m thinking that not only will the Atmos speakers be in-ceiling but, so would the rear/surrounds. Less than ideal, but the only other feasible option would be the rears in the back wall in the dining area. This would be 12-15 feet behind the main listening area. Hanging actual speakers from the ceiling is not an option.

Considering the size would you do 5.1.2 or 5.1.4? In the photos of those two options, in-ceiling Polk 700-LS speakers for Atmos and rear/surrounds. Do you want all of those to have the tweeter pointed to the main listening area or straight down?
