Layout Suggestions For Small Studio Apartment?

Good Questions

Q: My boyfriend and I just signed the lease for our first apartment; a 550 sq ft studio. The small size isn't really an issue as we don't have much furniture to put in it but we do need some suggestions for how to lay it out. We have a full size box-spring/mattress, small dining table with two chairs, TV stand, short bookcase and we're planning on purchasing a small couch.

We were thinking it made the most sense to put the bed in the small alcove created by the closet next to the kitchen, however, we're not sure how we would create privacy for the area. We're also unsure of how to layout the rest of the furniture. Ideally we'd like to be able to watch the tv from both the bed and the couch.
