    Without subject

    I often say: On the right of the room there is a desk or the desk is on the right of the room.
    But is it correct to say: On the right of the room is a desk. ?

    Re: Without subject

    Yes, but I would use "side" after "right" in all three cases,

    I would use "right side" or "right-hand side".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
