    Hello,

    There’s a 2cm gap below the internal bog-standard door. It’s always been there. Selling soon so not wanting to outlay on a new door, but the cooler air from the kitchen comes into the living room and is annoying. I’ve looked at brush pile strips but they only seem to go up to 5mm. Is there anything bigger anyone knows of? I don’t want the type which screw into the door as it will be too obvious.

    You're slightly limiting your options by not wanting something that screws onto the bottom of the door face. The brush pile strips that screw on are available to cover 2cm gaps. However that aside, if you can get the door off, and depending on the type of floor covering the door opens onto, what about attaching something like this on the underside of the door?

    If you Google internal door threshold seal you'll find tons of options.
