Hello,

If you want to change direction from “left to right” to “right to left” then you need to add dir="rtl" in your layout update page.
Edit following link:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="<?php echo $this->getLang() ?>” lang="<?php echo $this->getLang() ?>” dir="rtl">
under your page layout file. Below you can find the file path.
app/design/frontend/default/your_theme/template/page/1column.phtml
also made changes in 2column-right.phtml , 2column-left.phtml, 3column.phtml.
