Let´s mount your new bathroom cabinet, shall we?
Congratulations! You've got your mind set on a bathroom cabinet, and regardless which one of our designs is on your mind, it can really change your bathroom. It may be part of a project plan fully developed with your Kvik consultant - but of course you may have chosen to go it all on your own. Lets take a walk through of the central preparations and installation considerations.
Prepare the room
Have the plumber finished his part? And floors and walls are done?
In most cases the connection points are first priority, because your new bathroom cabinet will be placed over them. Connection points can be moved, for instance to come out of the wall, but it will require an authorised plumber, perhaps a mason to do so. Your local Kvik consultant can give you advice - also on how to avoid moving connection points.
And the electrician?
Same thing goes for the power connection points to for instance a backlit mirror or wall plugs for appliances inside the cabinet. The most convenient is to reuse existing wiring - but alterations needs to done before mounting
Install the cabinet
Watch the Video
If you click on this image, a video guide will show you a walkthru of the installation proces. Since it is a general video for all our bathroom cabines, it may not answer all your questions.
Read the installtalion instructions
There will be printed installation instructions in the delivery box, your cabinet came with. If not you can find assembly guides here - you will need your item number (on the the invoice)
Your Kvik Consultant
If you are in doubt in any way, you are free to contact your local Kvik - preferably the consultant you have bought the cabinet with.
Bathroom DIY - FAQ
Here are answers to the 3 most common question we get from customers in the middle of installing a Kvik bathroom cabinet
If you need to alter the connection to the drain, then most often you will need to break open the floorsurface so that new tubes can layed and and preferably come out of the wall somewhere through the backside of the cabinet
It is to make mistake, even for serious DIY'ers. However, a back up of spare parts is not a part of the DIY package. It can be order through your Kvik store.
You can do without - but many customers want a mirror that also serves as a lamp. In most situations, regulations require authorised personal to install wall plugs in a wet room. If you have an integrated sink, it often mean you have no real table top for electric toothbrush, hairdryer, shaver etc - and they go inside the cabinet instead. A wall plug to recharge them inside the cabinet itself is really handy.
