    I would say to do all your prep work first, i.e: take out the old floor, sand cabinets and walls. Next I would paint the walls, then the cabinets. If you are going to wall paper, paint the cabinets first and then put up the wall paper. After the cabinets and walls are painted tile the back splash and finally finish with the floor, that way you don't have to worry about dropping stuff on it. That is the way I would do it but others may have other theories. Good luck in your project.

    Here are the construction cliff notes;

    1- Plan plan plan, Measure a few dozen times. Pick out EVERYTHING. Ok maybe not the paint color just yet, but know where you are headed. You have to know the undercabinet lighting so the wire sticks out of the wall in just the right spot so it is ready 12 steps from now.
    2- demo
    3- framing- fix the old stuff to handle a tile floor (deflection) build new walls / closets / bracing for cabinets
    3- rough plumbing (see #1)
    4- HVAC (see #1)
    5- rough electric (see #1)
    6- insulation
    7- drywall
    here things get optional, but this is how we do it
    8- paint
    9- flooring
    10- cabinets
    11- order the granite
    12- trim work
    13- finish / trim out electric
    14- finish / trim out plumbing
    15- install appliances
    16-stand back and enjoy your work
    17- turn around and look at the rest of the house and what you can do next. Or not.

    I recommend taking beer breaks between jobs.
