When you buy a prehung door, you will be asked if you want a right or left hand door. To determine which you want, stand in the doorway facing the direction you want the door to move (into the room or out of the room). Fold your arms in front of you. Make one arm act like the door as you want it to swing. If you swing your left arm, you want a left hand door.
