If they can get to the bedroom from the other door, as they can from OP's remark about taking out which door, then they can block the kitchen door and use the other door remaining. I wouldn't recommend a door from the kitchen to the bedroom. OP can you extend the closet and close the kitchen off?

well the kitchen is really not used but its door cant be blocked and closet is fixed wall type. I'm also leaning in towards what was suggested with bed nearest to closet on door opposite wall and drawer. Use book shelf type room divider to separate the bedding area. The small area beside window, raise floor a few inches and make a japanese style sitting area for reading relaxing etc. or seating area with chairs and a small round table.

rest of the space in between can be used as seen fit, most probably with a couch area..

what do you guys think?

Whenever I encountered a design dilemma I always turn to the experts. In this case I would look at designers who have expertise in small spaces. Think small NYC apartments, and maybe even better, cruise ships.

I found a very cool website that shows room configurations for what appears to be all or most cruise lines. See here: http://www.cruiselinerooms.com/Site/index.php

And if you select a ship you see detailed layouts, such as this one:

Or maybe search for interior design blogs on the topic. I found this one: http://www.joannejakab.com/virtue-of-design-on-a-river-cruise-ship/

This might be too late to help you, however it might help the next person looking to design in a small space.
