Sound System Layout Advice

Hello,

I am new to all things audio, but I would like to install a sound system in my living room. I have many doors, so TV, speaker and furniture locations are difficult. Given the presented layout, where would you place speakers? Would you do 5.1 or 7.1 or other?

Thank you for any help you can provide!

"Given the presented layout."

Folks it just doesn't work this way. You've placed a TV and your furniture in a room and now you want to know where to put the speakers.
The SCIENCE of acoustics, in this case theater acoustics, is:where do the speakers go?, THEN place the TV/Screen and furniture.
Same goes for a 2 channel system. You can compromise all you want but its up to you if you'll be satisfied knowing it's not right.

Music, more music.

What do the colors mean in the image?
Is the wall to the left bare?
Do the thick blue segments indicate windows? Doors?
The slanted red block?
What are the tick marks in the thin red lines?
What do the 2 thin lines at the bottom mean?

You can place it in front of your TV by doing little adjustments
