Re: Tile first or new cabinets first
You will get about a 50/50 split on the opinion of whether to tile before or after cabinets, it really boils down to personal preference. There are benefits to both methods, but nothing that usually affects the homeowner. The only "critical" issue is whether the dishwasher will fit or be removable once tile is laid. It is VERY common for new flooring to be installed without regard to the dishwasher, big mistake.
