I'm working on this. I spent hours on my house making sure I would never have to squeeze around anything as I am a bit OCD about it.
I'm sure you know your wife is mad insisting on a 6ft bed in that room and a 5ft would make things a lot easier, but most of us have been there! I presume the 2050 width measurement is because of the width of the bed ends as a 6ft mattress is only 1800mm wide.
I have a few ideas, but a couple of questions first.
1. You say the door has to be in the same place, but does it have to swing that direction? I always try to swing door towards a wall as it takes up less room.
2. Does the en suite have to be in the bottom left as that is where the window is? I presume that you want a window in the WC.
3. Is the toilet drain in a fixed position so the toilet has to go roughly in the middle of the wall there?
4. Does the bed have to face that way, it would maybe free up space to put against the right hand wall. I personally wouldn't like having a 500mm space either side of the bed but you may be stuck with that no matter what. Some people don't like putting a bed under a window.
5. Does "full size porcelain" include the sink?
From my point of view the 350-400mm spaces in front of the toilet and between the toilet and shower in the plans you have shown would be totally unacceptable. Hopefully we can figure out something better for you.
1. Orientation of the door can be changed but as it stands the right hand side of the door opening will be 2500 from the left hand block wall.
2. Yes, the left hand side of the window, 600+wide is approx 800mm up from the bottom left hand corner
3. Drains not yet put in so I think we could move the toilet to the north wall/corner as that is the external wall. But locations are subject to agreement with builder. odd looking but the 3000mm width of the room gives potential to turn toilet 90degrees in current position, slide a little toward shower but give 600mm to get past into shower.
4. We were out there tonight (climbing out the stairs window) and discussed moving the bed under the window on the right hand wall. Certainly a possibility. The 6 foot mattress in not negotiable but the bed frame is unfortunately wasteful when it comes to space. We realise we may need to replace it.
5. Yes, sink with drawer unit - purchased.
The gaps as they stand are not ideal, just indicative of where we are and what needs working on. Gaining 50mm on partition walls, 50mm by going 550mm deep for wardrobes, bed frame to suit the super king mattress is 250mm one way and 150mm the other. With a 1000 long shower cubicle i could reduce the with to 700 giving more room between the toilet. I also think we need to re-visit 'wet room' ideas too.
There is space to be gained, just needs to be sweated.
