LaTeX

If you are using LaTeX, there are several options. One suggestion is using the following documentclass options and making use of the geometry package.

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt,twoside]{report}
\usepackage[left=2.5cm,right=2cm,top=2cm,bottom=2cm]{geometry}

Note that you are not restricted to using the report class. This is just for illustrative purposes.
