What to do first in a kitchen remodel?
First step is a plan---
Decide on lighting for under the cabinets--can lights and other electrical---layout--Cabinets and appliances in the same spot?
Next--order cabinets---after they arrive--start work--(you don't want the place demoed and find out the cabinet order was screwed up--)
Next--demo---remove counter top--cabinets--floor covering--and usually a 4 foot wide slice of drywall where the cabinet back splash was.
Next is mechanical---cabinet light wiring--new switches--lighting changes--
Plumbing----replace the drain opening with a T---at the appropriate height for your new deeper sink
New stub outs so you don't have to make huge holes in the cabinet backs for the old shut off valves.
Next---repair drywall and prime and one coat of paint
Cabinets on top of new floor
New base molding
undersink plumbing and appliances
