I haven't gotten into the wall yet to see how it was put together. At the end of a run, is the part that feeds into the room usually a "cap" on the end of the rectangular duct that can simply be turned around.
Thanks in advance,
You could certainly turn the vent around. You might have to reposition the pipe a bit, but it should work. To answer Mark's question about restricting to much airflow, a vent with a damper would be able to adjust if needed. If you're hallway is too warm the added heat will dissapate throughout the house and adjacent room, no biggy. Added plus to that warm hallway, is that it wouldn't be such a shock coming out of a warm bath when you're damp into a much colder room.
Your question begs for differing opinions, and this is just one more.
