For antenna placement, there are mainly two types:
1) indoor Antenna   
2) outdoor Antenna
Indoor antennas are generally small antennas, generally used as WiFi router antennas, Phones, Laptops, and USB WiFi Adapters.
Outdoor antennas are specially designed for long-range They are usually mounted on the rooftop and can transmit or receive radio waves to very long distances.

Most of the Home routers antennas have omnidirectional antennas that emit radiations equally in a single plane.
The direction of radiation emitted will be perpendicular to the direction you point the antenna. That means, If your WiFi router antenna position is vertical, it will emit radiation in a horizontal plane. If you are pointing WiFi antenna horizontally, waves will be emitted vertically.

Links>Wireless Installation Considerations and Managing Signal Congestion and Good Neighbour Policy

Forum User - "Well I feel really dumb. After moving the router away from other electronic devices my speeds are back to normal. Just a heads up for anyone experiencing slow speeds, you might want to move it away from other electronics and see if that helps."
3-6' feet minimum safe distance between devices.
Placement on main level floor and central in the building and WELL ventilated is preferred. Not in basements or closets as building materials, or near by electronics devices could interfere or hinder good signal propagation.
