An attractive addition could be to have a small microwave placed in it (as per the example shown below). This arrangement shall pretty much help you to get the basic requirements fulfilled like heating a pizza slice or even a glass of water. While, the shelves above can help store any eatables that you would like to munch on. The platform area can even be used to chop vegetables or perform any immediate tasks that you would like to accomplish in the comfort of your bedroom.

Different style:

Another style would be to not have the stove but just a fridge, a microwave and a sink. This would be ideal for cold cooking, heating through microwave and certain basic cooking through the same avenues. This is more for a compact bedroom design that would need comparatively less amount of space for the kitchenette. This design also portrays storage through lower lying drawers over shelves and uses that area to provide for windows instead. All in all, it is a good alternative to the previous design.

A few ideas:

1. Induction or a hotplate:

This little addition to your room can help you cook a few easy recipes, without giving you the headache of a stove or maintaining anything on a major basis. Having it would also lower the considerable chances of the room getting lit on fire. 

2. Microwave:

This would be another alternative to cook or heat some simple meals and ready-to-eat foods. It would also mesh in easily in any surroundings and decor that the bedroom holds due to its rectangular shape.
