A lot of site prep on your part to make sure no drywall is dropped, drug, etc. on new tile and to make sure no joint compound gets in all the new grout.

Rock, mud, sand if necessary, throw a coat of primer on, maybe 1 top coat, then tile. Eliminates all the need for floor protection.

Set fixtures after the tile - prevents damaging the cabinets when installing tile.

Also, should you ever swap out the vanity cabinet, you will not have to worry about exact size, as you will have tile underneat.
