How do I work out the hanging of my door?
It will be frustrating to order a door only to find that the hinges are on the wrong side when it arrives. The terms “left-hung” and “right-hung” may be confusing but it is an important concept to get right as it cannot be changed once the door has been assembled.
To figure out whether your door is left or right hung, when the door is closed stand on the side where you can see the hinges. If the hinges are on the Left, it is Left Hung. If the Hinges are on the Right, it is Right Hung.
If you don’t have an existing door to work off, choosing the right handing for your door is still important. For example, if there is a wall next to your door, that is generally the best place to put your hinges as the door will open against the wall, leaving more space in your room.
