Default Looking for advice on speaker choice.

I got a really great deal on a Marantz 7011 receiver, as the first step to upgrading from my Onkyo HTIB setup which has served me well for a while now, and want to get some awesome speakers to match.

I have my eye on the Klipsch premiere range and like the look of the upward firing Atmos speakers (RP-280FA and the RP-140SA's) but afraid these will be waaay too much for my tiny little room.

My current room is 11' x 12' and I'll be shining my Epson 1040 projector onto a screen somewhere between 92" and 100" which I'll decide once I have the projector mounted and focused. I like the offerings from Elite screens, but have not seriously shopped around for one yet. The Epson was a fraction of the cost of a 4K projector and all of my media is 1080p so I couldn't justify the extra expense just yet and my main passion is the sound so wanted to focus more of my spending in that direction.

I have attached a crude diagram of the room to give you an idea of where I am unable to place speakers and measurements and one idea I had with Klipsch placement. I welcome all ideas though as I want to achieve the best sound for my budget of around $5-6k.

In the next few years I will be moving to a much larger space with a living room at least twice the size, so I am half wanting to make sure I have the hardware to fill that room while not sacrificing sound quality in my current space. Maybe the RP-260F's would be better and I get dedicated ceiling speakers for Atmos?

I am open to other brands of course, Klipsch are just eye candy to me, although I doubt I will have the speaker covers removed for regular use.

Thanks very much for any help provided and if you need more info, let me know.
