How about changing the position of the hinge to the left side... Instead of the door opening from the left, change so that it opens from the right. This will prevent the door from banging into the other one...But it might be a tight squeeze.. You could do it for both doors (change the hinge side) so that you have a wider excess to the corner cabinet??

How about changing to a slide-door?

For my current house, the other door also has a handle, so it is knocking onto the handle not the door -> no scrathes.

This is a design fault. Usually, between L shape cabinet, one side of the cabinet should have at least 75mm allowance before the other door install. If the adjacent door do not have any allowance of less than 75mm, then it is a design fault. It is very complicated to convert casement door to sliding door. neither it is good to remove the handles as point 1 the screw holes are drilled and no way to patch on laminated finishes, point 2 do you think if you change on the particular door handle, will it look odd when the other handles are different?

get those small transparent rubbery looking square...to stick on the handles..as cushion.

well my cabinets do not have handles. hence, sticking on tat rubber protector is so obvious on the laminate. :(

Do drawers one side?

even with drawers on one side, when you open the other door, won't it hit the drawer?
