This wall is 16' from the back of the couch and the speakers would have to go above the kitchen cabinets at about 9-10' high. Would it be ok to install them this far back and high from the listening position? I will be adding 2 or 4 in ceiling speakers for Atmos but perhaps I can put 2 behind the couch in the ceiling and use those for surrounds if that would be ok? Any help is much appreciated! My wife won't allow speakers on stands in the middle of the floor so my options are the back wall and ceiling...

You can put them on stands behind the sofa. In ceiling is a good option, but I like the idea of putting them on the island. JBL makes some aesthetically pleasing pendant speakers so that could be a viable option.
