Home Network wired and wifi plan

I am having a new home built.  3000sq ft.  5 bedrooms, living/dining room, family room, loft.  I am having 2 Cat6 and 2 RG6 brought to each room.  All wiring is wired in a home-run to the wiring cabinet in Master Closet. 


My initial thought is to have Modem and 16 port router in wiring closet.  Should I do something different to help ease traffic congestion in router such as a 4 port router with each port feeding into its own 4 port switch which gives me 16 dedicated ports to connect to all wired locations?


Also, I want to have wifi for sure to cover whole house.  Do I go with a Mesh system or as i have wired ports in every room is there another 'better' method using WAPs?  I do want the Wifi to have a single SSID so that roaming through the house is seamless.


Thanks for any thoughts.
