New Kitchen remodel

I've done a far share of DIY projects around the house and for others but this will-be my first total kitchen remodel, so looking for some pointers from the pros!

Pending I don't have to work this Sat here's the plan.
I'm hanging new drywall

New floor, subfloor is 3/4 T&G with trafficMaster Allure vinyl flooring
All new cabinets.

Now first question is do I paint the walls before I install the cabinets?
Do I put the floor down before the cabinets?
Will it be best to use a laser level or a box level?
To level the cabinets shims, leg levels or something else?

Thanks in advanced!

Re: New Kitchen remodel

Hey Carlos. I'm in he same situation. My kitchen is small though. Demo is this Friday. I plan on painting first. It makes it easier to paint when the cabinets aren't in the way. After painting, I will be hanging the wall cabinets. Base cabinets will be screwed in after all wall cabinets are hung.

Granite counters and backsplash to be installed after cabinet install.

Floor will be done last. I'm leaning toward Durarock for areas where floor tile will be laid.

Floor tile, for me, will not be installed under the base cabinets. I figured I would save money on tile if I don't tile under the cabinets. Also, if in the future I want to replace the tile floor, I won't have to remove the floor cabinets to demo the tile.
