My teenage son went to live and work in Italy a few years ago. He lived in a delightful converted smithy which was basically one large room and such a partition wall, with storage, was used to separate his sleeping space from his living space. Another unit separated his bathroom... not great for long steamy showers but teenagers don't wash that often(!)... and the 'living room' side was the kitchen. (Attached pic. He'd prepared a spread for his visiting siblings). Certainly a cheap way to accommodate a student!

Wonderful ideas, especially the 'secret' bookshelf over the fireplace. Something I have often used in projects, adding an unexpected surprise and magic!
