How to deal with floor to door levelling

I am thinking of putting some click type solid wood down however most of these are quite thick e.g. 1-2cm thick. When I put the undelay board and the wood down I will not be able to open the door in my room. I guess my options to sort the door problem are as follows:

A) Saw the bottom part of the door

B)I could lay the wood put leave the area in front of the door unlaid. This would look ugly and place a dip in front of the door however tbh I don't care, i live by myself and couldn't care less about aesthetics or such a function because I will move out in a few months and take the wood with me.

1. I must have wood down as a temporary mesaure. Can you think of other ways I can solve the door problem?
2. Will (B) work or do you see any problems other then what I have mentioned?
3. If I simply cut the bottom of the door can I be sure the bottom will not be damaged in anyway? for example will cutting the bottom show the inside of the doors wood or will it be sold as the current bottom of the door is? How would I know.

Many thanks
