Hi,
I need suggestion for setting up a room primarily as a bedroom, it should include a small sitting/lounge type area as well. I've made an approximate layout of the place, both doors are same at 3' unlike shown in picture, one of them I want to be taken out and filled in.. suggestions for layout please?

Does the store access from your room? which wall is access on, top or right side?
Are there no other windows?
Is this inside walls?
Do the doors swing into the room or into the hallway? There is one of each on your plan.

Talk about long and narrow. This could be a "galley bedroom".

Would move that wardrobe and/or widen it for more cloths storage depending on door interference OR the store space if being used as a closet. May want to consider reversing the doors swinging inward assuming they are interior.

Yes, there is only one window. and the door directions are as shown, one swings inward, one outwards, one of them i want to be removed. All doors are interior except bottom kitchen one which opens into balcony. Wardrobe is fixed and the store room door is right beside the window.. So,...

This could be a good room for a loft bed. Just hang in on the wall and free up all that floor space.

I'd probably put the bed on the wall opposite the wider door with the bed facing it. That may be the door you want to get rid of. A dresser can go on the opposite wall near the door. Closer to the other end a seating area with a couple of occasional chairs grouped around a small round table. I'd also add an area rug underneath this. In the nook next to the storage area a desk against the short wall. Have fun with it!

I'm not sure where the window is but code requires a window in a bedroom for egress and it must have 5.7 sqft net of opening. The door does not qualify. The window must also not be more than 44" from the floor to the bottom of the window. The absolute smallest the bedroom can be is 70 sqft so you don't have a lot to work with here and still be livable. Might look at room dividers rather than any type of construction.

I think I am agreeing with a lot of what Lost Roses said.

A desk under the window
Chair in the corner by the store wall
Bed on the wall opposite the door
Nightstands on each side of bed
Dresser on wall
Chest of drawers on opposite wall
Take out doors to the kitchen and the other one near the kitchen wall
Extend the closet across the entire room

I doubt the closet can be extended, and I doubt the door to the kitchen can or should be blocked off

I guess I'd put the sitting area closest to the kitchen and leave that door, and put the bed near the store room and block that door if it is up to code to do so. The loft bed someone suggested is a good idea.
