Default Painting before or after cabinet install?

The title pretty much sums up my question. Our kitchen cabinets will be installed in about a month, so I need to know if I should go ahead and paint the walls when our drywall guy gets done (probably late this week or early next week) or should I wait until the cabinets are up? We are going with a light green color, so if the cabinet installer needs to mark the walls I don't think there will be a problem with seeing his lines. I was just wondering if cabinet installers prefer to work with bare walls or if it really matters.

Dan

Paint now...It is easy to touch up when the install is finished. They will work around it ...no problem.

Both, now and when the cabs are up. In other words you will have touch-ups to do once everything is installed. Its much easier to touch-up rather than cut in next to new cabs.

i did that on this kitchen I did. Click here to see more pics (before and after) and listen to a podcast describing the remodel.

I'd definitely paint it before the installation and some touch up after. (well I guess that an SOP when installing cabinets) Very nice kitchen handyguys!

Default How extended should paint dry before kitchen cabinet fitting?

Kitchen pictures look nice!! Right now remodeling our kitchen and wanted to know how long I should allow the first coat of paint dry rather than installing the cabinets.

Best Regards,

I agree with them. You should paint it before the installation. At least no need to worry if you need to cut,s if your cabinet is not fitted. Good luck on doing it. I think majority wins. But try to ask other people to make it sure.
