When to install??


I am currently doing a complete reno to the main floor of my house. I have my sub-floor down right now and am not sure which step I should take next.
Do I install my hardwood/laminate (not decided yet) first, or do I install my kitchen(cabinets) first?

Thanks in advance!

Kitchen cabinets first, then laminate, make sure to keep 1/4" distance from walls and cabinets, after cabinets, trimwork is installed to cover 1/4" gap.
