Excuse the sapilli doors... Has anyone ever seen these wooden monstrosities before? I want to remove them all but am concerned about the flooring gap it will leave. Will I also need to replace the door stops too? Image

Yes, I am removing mine, had done a couple already, they are nailed to the floorboards and go under the door jambs generally. Best thing to do is if you have a multicutter, cut through the middle then pull each part up separately. Your issue is that you are going to leave a pretty big gap! normal door thresholds are alot thinner so it's the sort of thing you remove before laying carpet and the carpet fits up to the silver/gold style threshold.

So are you removing it completely where it goes under the jamb? Or cutting it flush?

Removing completely, although you could cut around the jambs. Not sure why you would though

The new carpet on the right will sit under door jumb to hide the gap, if a little gap shows its not the end of the worldImage
