Need advice on front speaker positioning

Hi,
Looking for suggestions on positioning of front speakers in my open plan living room, specifically FR speaker
As you can see in the pic the room is far from ideal with kitchen area on the right side of mlp.
Options I see
1) Move the FR speaker closer to the TV which will be probably closer to the recommended set up. In this case I'll need to move the FR to right everytime for projector viewing.
2)Keep the FR speaker fixed on right (as in the picture) but in this case it will be quite far from the TV.
I'm trying to figure out which will be a better compromise.
Projector will be used mostly for football and occasional movies or TV program.

Set up :
Speakers - 5.1.2(Canton movie 75+ Kef ceiling speaker for Atmos)
Receiver - Denon avr 2300
Projector - Optoma 142x
Screen - Sapphire 120" electric

Can you put it to the right of the plant pots so it's just out of the way of the screen. But then is it possible to move the TV and the cabinet more toward the middle of the wall ?

It will go behind the screen then, also the wall is not 180° which means the TV will be far away in a diagonal position from the sofa.
Unfortunately can't move the sofa to the right otherwise it will be right in the kitchen area

Ah ok. There's not as much space to the right of the screen as the first pic suggested. I'd probably keep the speaker on the front wall but move it into that gap if you can for projector viewing.

So you suggest calibrating it with closer to the TV and then move the FR further right for occasional projector viewing like in these pics?
Please note both front speakers are actually in the same horizontal line in both pics
