Need help with bedroom layout

Confusing bedroom layout between bed facing entrance door with less closet space to work with?
Or bed on side on room -- which feels strange -- yet may be more practical to have a large closet facing entrance?

My vote would be for the arrangement with the blue bed, it seems to make more sense to me.

I wouldn't want to walk around the bed to get back and forth between the closet and bath, so I pick the red bed layout!

I would pick the red bed layout (second pic). Having the bathroom door next to the bed is not something I would suggest.

Blue bed layout so the bed can be the focal point when you walk into the room.

It isn't that far to walk around the bed to get from the closet to the bathroom so that is really a non-issue.

Or if you turn it as in the second red bed layout can you put a comfy chair catty-corner in the corner by the slidding doors? If so it would automatically feel more comfortable.

ahha nice idea @janishill i agree it would make the room much more welcoming ... the bed on the side of the door is annoying but the couch would add a lot of value.. thanks for the idea

The bluue bed definitley makes the most sense. Who wants to walk right into a bed?

Hvae you thought of changing th estyle of the door? A pocket door, a barn door, or french style door would be functional while taking up less floor space.

No, I haven't thought of such doors but I don't really see the added benefit in this specific room !

HI -- The second picture is best I think . I don't understand why you would think that the side arrangement is strange.

In my mind, the bed has to be the focal point of the room so putting it on the side puts me in this sort of dilemma Bcoz I'd win more space if the bed were turned sideways (pic2)

I like the blue bed layout. This layout gives the impression of a larger uncluttered space as you enter the room.

Question: Where are the windows? Or is this just an exercise? Windows can have an impact on your layout also.

Can you ever have enough closet space? Definitely prefer the one with larger closet... But where the windows are would play a big role as well

the windows are at the leftmost part of the room behind the sliding doors ... it was actually a balcony but it is now closed (windows added).. in short, u can consider the leftmost (half door) as the windows for the room

The blue bed is more formal, more symetrical, and the bedding arrangement is the focal point, which can be highlighted with bedding, picture frames. For the other scheme what do you have planned for the white space? it too can be a focal point: a tv wall, entertainment and home office equipment, and laptop or computer can be put there, so it depends on what is your most important focal point. Thanks for sharing!..
