What's the easiest way to determine the swing or hand of a door.  Here's a couple options, you decide what's easier for you to remember. Step in the door way with your back to the hinges. You will be standing sideways in the opening, looking at the opening where the door latches. If the door and hinges are on the left side, it is a left hand door. If the door and hinges are on the right side, it is a right hand door.

Another way:
Always picture this from the inside, or the room the door swings into. Looking and facing the door, if the door knob is on the left side of the door, it is a left-handed door. If the knob is on the right, it would be a right-handed door.
