I have a bedroom, off the entry way of a cabin, that is about 8" lower than the rest of the house. So when you enter the bedroom, you have to step down (one step). I am going to put a door on this and am wondering which way the door should swing, into the room or out of the room. I know that bedroom doors should swing in, and doors at the top of stairs should swing out. Since this is both, which one wins out?

Yeah the landing on the inside seems right
If the door opens in they won't be able to see as they open the door. And a landing is required by code

I might be inclined to use (2) 1/2 doors that each open instead of 1 big door if space is an issue
