Just moved into a new home and trying to figure out how to place my Sonos system. I have the Playbar, Sub, and two Play 1:s.
In my old house i had a pretty small living room so it was easy to mount the surround speakers (Play: 1's) on the wall at head level to the left and right of the couch.
In our new home I'm told the Family Room/Kitchen Combo is now called a "Great Room". So I don't have a wall behind where my couch is. To the left of the couch (if you're sitting on it) is large windows, and to the right of the couch is a hallway that leads to the other rooms.
So since I have a window on one side and nothing on the other side I'm lost to where I can place my Sonos speakers safely. Back up plan is getting a Speaker stand, but I really don't want to do that with cables and such lying around.
So I'm thinking maybe I could mount them on the wall on either side. One side would have to be above the window where there is a gap between the window and ceiling. And on the right there is an overhang where I could possibly mount the speaker as well. This would mean I would need to have an electrician add a power plug in both areas which would add a lot of extra costs to this, but if it's the best bet it'll have to do.
Just wondering if other people have similar issues or a floor plan and what you guys did.
Also what is the thought of having the Surround speakers mounted high up pointed at an angle towards the couch?
I have included an extremely bad picture of the rough layout of our Great Room. If it helps at all they are 9ft ceilings as well.

Congrats on your new home! You could use a ceiling mount shown in the link. Depending upon whats above the great room you could have an electrician install electrical outlets in the ceiling. You can also get short Sonos power cables for a ceiling application or have an electrician alter the existing cables.
Another option is to have electrical out lets installed in the floor and use stands.
