Hi we have two pantry doors in the kitchen. They are awkward and one houses some hidden mechanicals against the back wall.

We want to remove the doors, the door trim and the wall between them to combine and make extra kitchen cabinets and pantry space. However, the kitchen remodeler says we are “limited in how much we can open up the closet without seeing the subfloor below” I’m not sure why if we add more told flooring?

Can anyone explain this to me or have any ideas? I thought we could fill in any gaps with spare tile we have then built out a thick molding of some type in front to cover up any gaps from the door frame. I’m not sure how bad a gaps he’s really talking about. Appreciate any feedback.

Likewise, The doors are trimmed well and removing them will result in a lot of sheetrock, trim and tile work, whereas leaving the casings in place will keep the design of the house in tact.
