tile under sink cabinet or around it


Hi Fellas-
great forum here. I will be gutting my bathroom and re-doing it from scratch. I have done a lot of research and reading, but have not found yet whether it is best to tile entire floor and then put sink cabinet over this, or install sink and cabinet first and tile around it. Let me know what you think. Thanks in advance.
-Jay

I always tile under the cabinet---much faster---less chance to mess up the new cabinet with thinset or grout---if the sink ever leaks the tile gets wet,not the plywood subfloor.

Thanks Mike!
I guess tiling under the cabinet seems a bit easier too. I'll do that. As mentioned, I'm still in the research phase of all this. You'll probably hear more from me in the near future as I find more questions.

I agree with tiling under it. I'm about to tile my kitchen with 12x12 porcelain on the diagonal, and just the other day I decided to pull out the small cabinets on either side of my range and tile underneath everything. It will only be 6 sf more tile, but there will be about 15 fewer cuts I have to make. I've already pulled out the cabinets and countertops (came out very easily) and then placed them back loose-fit in place until I actually get ready to start the job next week.
