kirkhall -- question for you about pantry door design
This was your suggestion:
"Your pantry door: outswing and reversed (hinges on other side). Then, you can open it from the kitchen, and you can use the space on the floor of the pantry rather than waste it on door swing space."
I really really like your suggestion, but I'm confused on how it works exactly.
My husband says that this is a finger-pinching hazard because the door would have to be spring loaded to ensure that the door, when shut, stays shut in the proper place.
Can you help me understand what he means? Or alternatively, can you explain how it works in a way that isn't a finger pinching hazard?
