Basement Recepticles?

My basement was finished before I purchased the house and there are 120v receptacles on every wall....... But, all of them are mounted upside down with the ground hole on top.

Is that code or did someone screw up? Can I reinstall them with the ground hole towards the bottom like the rest of the house?

hi, there is no right side up or upside down. it is a matter of preference....not code....put them whichever way makes you happy and seems most appealing to you.
