Walk up to your bedroom door. The door will be opening away from
you, swinging into the room. The door will be flush with the
inside bedroom wall surfaces. If the hinges are on your right
hand side, it is a right hand door. If you had the door open, you
put your back to the hinges, your right arm would be the door
swinging till it latches flush on the inside bedroom wall surface.
Walk up to your closet door. the door will be opening toward you,
swinging away from the closet. The door will be flush with the
outside wall surfaces. If the hinges are on your right hand side,

the door, put your back to the hinges, your left arm is now the
one swinging like the door does. It can swing until it latches
against the door stops, it will be flush with the

the side of the jamb where the door opens.
