"househugger" brings up a good point - "door stop" -

Hinge mounted.

I switched from a standard door to a pocket door on our bathroom. Best move I ever made.

I like pocket doors!
Is the wall the door is in load-bearing?
You have to remember "Header" requirements - 30 inch pocket door -
60+ inch "Header" -
Double 12's?

Ouch! I had so much respect for your previous post until I saw that! It's a new bathroom, let's do it right. He needs a door stop so it's obvious to me it should be placed on the floor. Now would it make sense to put the stop next to the radiator or the tub? No brainer to put it next to the rad. Next, what if someone wants to put in a shower door? Do you want the stop on the floor next to the tub, if you don't put one there, the door handle will hit the shower door. Pocket door? Had 'em, hate 'em, only if the last resort

Agree on all counts, except that I think sliding shower doors would be much more appropriate in this situation.

Actually, I was only thinking of a sliding shower door. The handle of the door to the room might hit it.
Also, someone mentioned hinge door stops. No no no no NO! Thats just door abuse although it provides more work to us contractors down the road when we're called to fix the door
