Ceiling too low?
I feel such a tool. A few weeks ago i am embarked on sorting out the living room floor. I layed plywood on the floorboards then self levelling. I got so obsessed with the level that i didn't take into account how high the ceiling will be after i had finished . I installed some 10 mm laminate on top and trim. The door was yet to be installed, it then dawned on me that ceiling was considerably lower, I have a measure it and it comes out at 237.5, I feel like ripping it out and starting again, but i think the wife will kill me. Do you think this is too low.?

It's fine. Some places I go to are lower than that. Unless you have stuff that's super tall it shouldn't be a problem

Agree with other answer it’s about bang on doors are 6’6 your ceiling is about 7’9 which is about what you’d get in most new builds give or take

I agree with both answers. Nothing more to add.
