You must also consider acoustics of your home theater design. Having thick carpeting on floor, hangings on wall, and thick upholstery on chairs will help. Using these things can help acoustics immensely and may also remove need for an acoustical diffuser. However, if they do now, you may want to think about applying acoustical foam where looks are not a concern, or purchasing diffusers to use around surround sound speakers to create a more natural sound.
Finally, positioning of your seating and equipment will have a large impact on your home theater design. Seating should be placed in rear center of your home theater, facing center of screen - exact arrangement will depend on size and shape of room. Front speakers should be placed in a straight line in front of seating and centered on it. Surround speakers should be placed alongside and to rear of seating on walls, a few feet up above where viewer's heads will be.
With proper planning and careful thought, you can achieve great home theater design, and get best movie viewing experience for your money.
