    preposition of places

    what is the difference between " to the left" and " on the left"? which one is better in the following sentence?

    If you open the door my room, you will find a big desk to the left ( or on th left or on the left side??) of the door.

    There is a TV set in the lower left corner of my room.

    There is a big table in the center( or middle) of my room.

    Which one is better and why?

    Re: preposition of places

    In your sentences, all are fine (middle/center, to/on the left [side], etc).
