In-swing vs out-swing door. Can they be reversed?


If I turn the threshold it will leave an inch gap. I can just get that rubber strip that screws to the bottom of the door if it becomes an issue.

I'd order the proper door. You are just asking for problems with an improper installation.

I actually just mocked it up and I'm thinking I might install it the correct way. The area under my stairs is bigger than I thought so having it swing in might not be so bad. I appreciate everyone's help.

That would be ideal Mike: the best of both worlds.
