Our laundry door opens inwards and hits the toilet, not a problem for the occupants as we know the toilet it there and are gentle but visitors throw it open.
I'll attach some pics so you can get an idea, but what kind of doorstop would you use in this situation. Anything on the floor will get in the way of using the toilet and putting a bumper on the door where it meets the toilet will look ugly when looking at the actual door.
Also will have a similar problem with the bathroom door hitting the shower screen.
Anyone else had this kind of dilemma before? Any decent looking suggestions?

One of our toilet doors misses the loo by that much and that upsets me, as it's hard to get in if you're a big person. I thought about having our door removed to make it an outward opening door.

Could you put a stopper in the floor, but put it closer to where the door is hinged to the frame? Then it won't be in the way when people are on the loo.
I leave you to fend for yourself, figure things out yourself.

Problem 1 - What about a larger version of those stick on circles that you see on glass tables etc?
Problem 2 - We used the smaller version on the side of the bath so the shower screen door didn't bang onto it.

Joles - yeh I think this is the only option so far
Mclaren - not keen on the bumper option as we did this with the original toilet and door, it did the job but didn't like looking at it when on the loo...hehe
May have to use the door stop on the floor but nearer the hinge in both places.
Just hoping there was an innovative product out there that I didn't know about.

Could you take a photo please of what you used? I have the same problem
Dont really want to drilll into the tiles as it might crack
Sorry Patrick, we no longer live in the house I was referring to and I don't think I ever got a photo. I think I just used a 3M clear silicone stopper on the door (where it hit the toilet). Wasn't really obvious. We are now going to face the same issue as our new vanity has one big drawer (instead of cupboard style doors) and if the door is open, the vanity drawer hits the door.

if you put the stopper on the floor nearer the hinge the leverage will rip the hinge off
you could possible fit the stopper to the end of the door where it strikes the toilet
the only sensible option is sliding door and just spend the money

We had a shower door once that hit a sink when fully opened. I just bought a car door plastic edge thingo - from one of those car parts places (for car doors - come in various colours) - stuck it on the shower screen door. Problem solved - price under $5.

A door closer can restrict how much the door will open
