    The door on our wardrobe has warped in. It's fine at the bottom, it's just the top.

    Any advice on how to bend it back out again please?

    Many thanks.

    are you saying one door is lower than the other ??
    if so the floor is not flat you need to raise the back rh corner or the front lh corner

    Thanks for your replies.

    Both doors fit perfectly, however, the top half of one of the doors has warped inwards.

    It has been stored in the garage, the floor is level.

    Damp conditions in a garage make it more likely to absorb moisture, simply moving to a dry environment may return the warp back to normal after a few months, if not you will need to dampen and leave it flat and weighted down to take out the warp.

    Leave it for a while, it may recover.

    Could try adjusting the hinges, probably a bit of a hassle though.
