Moving Furniture - More Space - Help!

I was wondering if anyone would be willing to help me try and plan the two rooms in my apartment for optimization of space.. I have sized down cut outs of the furniture and two rooms that I can e-mail for print out for easier planning (cut outs).

I would really appreciate any help.. I'm fresh out of ideas and I'm sick of having everything jumbled together! I really want an actual living room space rather than just a couch and tv in front of it in the middle of the room between the desks and dining table.

It doesn't help that Nick has two massive desks for our computers and he refuses to downsize... and we have a king sized bed, and a full couch, and two chairs.

If anyone is good at this kind of stuff please help ! I have tried everything I can think of and need a new perspective.

Here are my two rooms as they stand right now: (bigger versions available if you click)

Main Room:


Second Room:

One of my ideas... put up a curtain in the bigger room and put the bed there. I dont think I mind having the dining table in the other room. The kitchen is adjacant to the large room, if you note the black line in the bottom right corner of the room. The entrance hallway is just to the left of the kitchen, and the entrance to the other room / bathroom is on the left wall in the bottom corner (I've marked entrances with black lines)



The nice thing about this one is in that top right hand corner of the bigger room, there is the A/C unit right by the bed for the summer...

You have too much time on your hands.

Put the desks in the kitchen an move the sink, stove and fridge out to the livingroom.

Well aside from looking for a job and cleaning the house, you're right, I do..

but if I have to live in this dinky space for another year I'll be darned if it won't be space optimized.

I'd love to be working right now and not have time to think about this, but unfortunately it's hard to find a job here right now and I look every single day and send out resumes every single day.

I'd rather not be poked at for having too much time on my hands, its a sensitive issue as you can see. If I don't do something I'm going to go crapping insane.

So anyways, I would appreciate any serious help someone would be willing to offer. I appreciate the joke about too much time but like I said, I'd prefer not to be poked at.

No, the first two pictures are how it is laid out right now in real life. The idea picture is just an idea.
