Should the desk be facing the door or is that not necessary? I have a futon, just purchased a desk with a chair, are about to determine if a nice side table fits, but don't know how should I position my desk.

@BrendaAponte Some people don't like having their back to the door, but if it doesn't bother you, just put the desk wherever it works best with the flow of the room. I like to put mine facing a window, if possible.
