We know that the iPad only connects using wireless but don't know whether you plan to connect the iMac and/or the MacBook Pro using wireless as well.
If yes, the ideal spot for the Time Capsule would be a central location so that wireless devices would all be about the same distance from the Time Capsule.
Think of a wheel with a hub and spokes. The Time Capsule would be the "hub". Each wireless device would be located at end of a separate "spoke".
If that won't work, Apple does offer devcices like the AirPort Express and AirPort Extreme that can "extend" the wireless signal for greater coverage.

Geographically, my TC is in a cupboard under the stairs - but I guess that that isn't what you meant!
I have mine attached to my NetGear DG834G wireless router via Ethernet cable. My other devices can thus "talk to" the Time Capsule wirelessly to the router and thence by cable to the TC itself.
Some people seem to prefer the TC to be attached directly to the device being backed up, but in my case that isn't really practical which is why I went for the solution I outlines above.
That seems to work just fine.

Check out this. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1365 These are the things you are looking for when trying to get the best WiFi Signal. You may want to consider one of the Airport Expresses for a possible extended network if you have a large living space.
