I could do with a setup that will fill the room pretty well and sounds good when you're either stuck cooking in the kitchen or lounging at the other end.
Can't really decide what to do. I think the speakers will have to be mounted high on the walls so they don't get knocked off stands by careless toddlers but apart from that I've got a bit of flexibility. One on each long wall around the middle of the room (Dining area)? Diagonally opposite to one another to even up coverage (e.g one in lounge, another on kitchen wall)? Do I use as a stereo pair or just go mono with the option of grouping them? Note that I can't really stretch to any more speakers at this stage and am confident that two speakers will provide the necessary volume - just want to try and get them sounding their best!

I probably would set it up as a stereo pair on occasion, just to show the wife how much better it sounds that way. And if you haven't already, find toddler music so that kids can get on board with how great Sonos is. You'll probably be able to magically find money in the budget if the wife and kids are on board. I'd say your ideal setup, IMO, is to have a stereo pair on both ends of the room.
