Yeah, if you're comfortable not hitting the coolant lines, the side can be better situated. Personally, I wasn't confident enough in my abilities to not brick my fridge, so I went with the door. I wouldn't worry about hitting the taps on the wall, since a handle on the door will often hit first. If nothing else, use a spare keg to protect the wall/taps when you're moving stuff in and out. The lines were a little bit of a hassle, but so long as you keep them long enough, there's plenty of give inside to move things around with them in your way.
One point, if you do decide to go with the door taps, and you have a top-freezer compartment, make sure you drill your holes low enough to fit any tap handles you may want to use. When I made mine I didn't plan that far ahead, and wound up with a couple of tap handles that overlapped the top freezer door by about an inch, so I couldn't use them without attaching the freezer and fridge doors. I knew I'd forget at some point and go into the freezer for meat or hops and open up both taps all over my feet, so had to stick to short black tap handles until I upgraded.
