You will need specialized tools and applications to do a professional setup, using heat map simulators etc.

Alternative is to guage the signal range of the APs and then position them strategically.
You can use wireless networking applications to measure actual signals.

TIPS
- Brick walls limit signal accros rooms
- Microwave or electromagnetic waves can interfere with signals
- Position APs with about 20% overlap
- Use Auto settings for channel detection on the controller
