pls help with the layout

Dear All,

I have recently moved to a 230 sq. ft. studio apartment and am confused as to how to divide the open space into living and sleeping areas.

The entrance and windows are in the north-south direction.

I cannot do any major remodelling as this is a rental property.

Have attached the layout pic for your perusal and would appreciate all the advice from the pros here.

Thanks in advance.

Your floorplan looks good. Perhaps use a couch or living room chair to separate the spaces. You could place your tv in the center, too.
It seems like you still have a good deal of floor space and storage.
Post a picture when things are set up. Would like to see it in living color.

Been there, did this: Put sofa back against bed headboard & get a cheap five-foot folding screen (Target, Penney's, Wal-Mart) to put between them. Visual divide. I loved it. Cost about $50 & made me feel like I was living in 2 separate rooms.
