    Do you have drop down ceilings with a grid? If so you can hang material or a sheet to make an instant divider. Otherwise, put a bookcase perpendicular to the wall (leaving room for your bed) and put the head of your bed against it

    Your question is very vague. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

    Robbie is correct, those are two really good suggestions. Another option is some sort of standing privacy screen that can give the semblance of a wall.

    Not exactly sure what your question is --how about black-out curtains on the windows or using a room divider.

    Might as well incorporate storage in your divider. Bookcase. Check Free section on Craigslist if need be!

    I am going to assume that there are no hallways separating the rooms. Just doors that lead from room to room with no privacy. If this is so, you can hang curtains, sheets, from wall to wall. You can also have a line of bookcases or room divider with a false doorway draped with a curtain. Rough example in the photo I attached. The green line would roughly be your privacy wall.

    Get bed sheets from a thrift store and shower curtain rings. Get some wire and eye bolts from the hardware store and hang the sheets from the ceiling
  • Use your dresser as a room divider with the drawers facing the living space and the head of your head against the dresser

    If you want something a little heavier, you can use a canvas drop cloth from Harbor Freight. They're $9 a piece for the 4th and you can even decorate with some craft paint and a rubber stamp. ( if you wash them, they get really soft).
