How Do I Hide the Kitchen in My Studio Apartment?

Good Questions

Q: I live in a very small studio apartment. One of the walls of my "kitcha-dina-liva-bedroom" is my kitchen. I get a little tired of looking at my kitchen when I'm not cooking something. Everything in the "kitchen" is recessed a little into the wall, and I'm wondering what the best way to "hide" it is.

Covering it with a curtain presents a few difficulties — I can't pull curtains to the right side because I'm worried about the stove. I could, however, pull something over to the left, because I don't use my radiator, but there's not a whole lot of room. Is there a roll up shade made of fabric or another light-weight material I could put up? I would prefer not to use a screen because it seems like it would take up a lot of floor space. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
