Do your once perfectly aligned cupboard doors now no longer line up with each other?  Does one appear to sit lower than the other?  Have they started to rub or stick to each other?

If you answer yes to any of these it is likely that your cupboard or cabinet doors have begun to sag, which happens a lot over time.  Thankfully it is pretty straight forward to fix, simply grab a screwdriver and a friend to hold the door and get to work.

Most cupboard doors sag because the screws that hold them in place have slowly worked free, so fixing it is as simple as lifting the door and having your friend hold it in its correct position.  Then tighten the top screw first and then the bottom one.

You may need to step back and admire your handy work a few times, make a few adjustments, and then you will have perfect doors again.

If this doesn’t fix your problem, stay tuned as we will bring you more ideas next week!
