How to measure for the door you need
Door openings and dimensions are especially important when installing or replacing an interior door. When replacing an existing door with a pre-hung door, you will want to choose a door that has the same dimensions as the existing one.
For a slab door, measure the width, height, and thickness of the door. For a pre-hung door, measure the width and height of the slab, the rough opening (space between the studs with no door installed), and the thickness of the jamb (the wall thickness that the door unit will be fitting into).
How to determine door swing direction
It’s important to know whether your door is left or right handed, so we know where the door hardware (think: hinges and door handle) should go. To determine the handing, or door swing, stand on the outside of the door (the side from where you would enter, such as in the hallway facing the bedroom). If the hinges are on the left side of the door, you have a left-handed door. If the hinges are on the right side of the door, it's a right-handed door.
