I have just built a fitted wardobe out of white plas within a recessed area within my bedroom. 2.4m high x 1.4m wide approx. I have lined out to the outer walls and built a partition 420mm in to accomodate shelves to the LHS. The problem is I have bought 3 doors 1 x 400mm and 2 x 515mm to fit in this gap but have now found that the RHS side wall is 10mm wider at the top than is at the bottom. The doors fit based on the lower width measure but obviously I cannot get the doors to hang straight with concealed hinges due to the 10mm difference. I have hung the LHS (400mm) door to the LHS and that is fine. Has anyone any tips on how to approach fitting the 2nr wider doors into the gap with the wall problem decribed.

Fit a 10mm packer behind the top hinge or cut a fillet of wood to fill the whole gap.
