I was thinking of a few panels of diffusers behind the speakers and couple of panels of absorbers behind my head on the wall.
Sounds like a reasonable plan of action. Strong (broadband) absorption behind listening position would certainly stop reflected sound from messing with the primary wave front.

Space behind the speakers is also similar. I was thinking of a few panels of diffusers behind the speakers and couple of panels of absorbers behind my head on the wall. I don’t need anything on the sides because the speakers fire into sofas and bookshelf full of books, curtain etc. Also there is ample space on the sides and my listening is nearfieled ( 8 ft max distance from head to speakers)

GIK has these cool looking panels with designs which blend into the décor. Hence the interest in them.
Looks like a good plan, GIK is a good option, QED diffusors will be bit expensive but again it will make room live. If possible you can put some absorption panels in roof also, people say the smallest dimension in most cases will be the height ( especially in US) of room and hence room modes.

Hmm. If I were in your position, I'd first list, subjectively, the issues I sense with the sound in the room. Then, I'd measure the room to get an objective view. Then, and only then, would I start to take measures to fix the room acoustics.

Like with most everything else, if you don't know what the problems are , you can't know what the solutions might be.
