CAN YOU SPOT POOR QUALITY?
To quote Hunter S. Thomson who said, "Anything worth doing, is worth doing right". I am not certain the the creator of Gonzo journalism was thinking about kitchen installation, but we really don't know, do we?
In my world, anyone who's offering their services in exchange of money must be obligated to deliver outstanding quality. Unfortunately, that is not how it is when it comes to kitchen installations.
Years of experience with kitchen installations have provided me with an eye for details and every now and then, I come across other kitchen installers work, and when it happens, I am not impressed.
Not only am I surprised that anyone would charge money to deliver such poor quality, but it also puzzles me that the customers didn't react and asked for the issue to be rectified. But maybe they didn't notice that something was wrong.
How about you, do you accept poor quality?
Check these examples and try to see if you can see why the pictures to the left, are wrong.
When done, check my comments at the bottom of the page.
This is an easy one. The doors in the picture to the left are not adjusted to line up as they should. The doors to the right are much better but still not perfect.
"Caulk is my friend" could very well be something the guy who did the valence and filler said. Jeez.
Drawer hardware in the left side is positioned all wrong and secured with one screw only.
The rail to the left is not only mounted using the wrong screws but is also cut too short and then a small piece have been added. Not good. The little piece was not even screwed into a stud so the cabinet was hanging all slanted.
This one goes without saying...doh! Inside drawers must be installed with equal space between thm of course.
How many mistakes did you spot?
