New kitchen going in - how to paint?

All new cabinets and countertops going into the kitchen. Doing the demolition and prep, then a kitchen outfit will install the cabinets and countertops.

After I demo and then repair the walls as needed - I am thinking a prime coat and put a first cover coat, have the cabinets and countertops installed, and then do a final cover coat.

Other suggestions?

Just a thought although it sound's like you're on the right track. Remember to check your insulation and seal your wall at floor level before you paint. My kitchen walls and corners are horrendous for drafts and cold spots that I can't reach right now. Where I am its -30 today

You should be able to put two coats on right away. Then you won't have to cut around everything when the cabinet installation is complete. Your installers should be careful enough not to marr it up. Some darker color paints don't harden up for weeks afterwards. I had some California paint that got some dirt on it and when I went to wipe it off a week later the paint came off with the sheen and all. It was so noticeable that I had to repaint the wall. Talked to the paint rep and he said it just takes longer for that color and other dark ones with this particular paint to harden, even weeks.
