Perpendicular door layout

25 days ago

We are creating a small mudroom from our current breezeway space between the house and the garage. There will be an entry door (from the exterior) as well as a door into the garage. (On the other end of the mudroom is a doorway (no door) into the kitchen). Both doors I think have to swing in. The way they are configured now in the plan, they theoretically can hit each other if both are opened at the same time. However when I think about it, given the smallness of the space and the width of the doors, I think this will happen even if they swing different ways. What is the ideal swing setup for these doors? Also the door to the garage can be moved placement wise, but that seems to make the situation worse as it then gets closer to the exterior door.
