How to Open a Door

Introduction: How to Open a Door

Doors can close the passageway from one room to another or from one room to outside. They can help with privacy and isolation from outside things like bugs and allergens. In this tutorial, I will teach you how to open a door.

Step 1: Locate Desired Door

First you need to locate a door that you would like to open and make sure that it is currently closed. Trying to open an already open door can look a bit strange.

Step 2: Locate Door Handle or Knob

Locate the handle or knob on said door. This is what is used to open a door.

Step 3: Turn Knob or Handle and Pull or Push

Grab hold of said handle or knob and turn it around 90 degrees either clockwise or counter-clockwise and either pull or push. If you pull and nothing happens, then that means that the door opens away from you. So go ahead and push while still holding the knob or handle turned around 90 degrees. After you have opened the door a sufficient amount to walk through, you can let go of the handle and walk through the doorway.

There you go! You have successfully opened a door!

    Remember that some doors you need to push not pull!

    This could be improved. Different people have different approaches to opening and entering doors depending on the contents and size of the rooms they are exiting and entering. Could do a survey of problems which they experience when using different types of doors. Could actually be helpful for people with different physical and neurological abilities.

    Who doesn't know this, no point in making it just taking up space.

    Just because *you* know how to open a door doesn't mean everyone knows how.
