A job that's done properly is a bit like a neat and tidy home - often people don't even notice, although everyone appreciates the results.

But when something isn't quite right - everyone notices, and some people can get quite irritated by it.

Kitchen and bathroom installations are the same.

When the cabinets fit perfectly, and the doors hang square, and the drawers run smoothly, and all the parts do what they're supposed to do, the end users will be happy.

They'll appreciate the quality workmanship, without even realising the effort that's gone into it.

As the installer, though, you know the effort that's required.

A successful installation requires careful planning and the ability to adapt the components you're installing to the actual site conditions.

It also requires a good understanding of how the other trades fit in with your part of the job, so that in the end all of the elements work together.

In this unit, we'll discuss the steps involved in assessing the site and taking into account the features that will affect the installation job.

We'll also examine the sorts of things you should look for and the process of recording them.

The unit is designed to follow on from Processes in kitchen and bathroom projects.

In that unit we took a broad view of the processes involved in installing a kitchen or bathroom and the main factors that help to produce a quality job.
