Alternative to true surround sound system

If one cannot have rear speakers (including wireless ones) in an A-V setup, which one would be a better option for sound quality? A 2.1 system (Subwoofer and 2 front speakers) or a modern soundbar?

The room in question is the lounge in an open plan house where there is no place to mount rear wall speakers and the wife will not allow floor-standing towers or similar.

Could you not mount the rear speakers on the ceiling? Or put them on stands and tell your wife to not look behind her?
