When installing new kitchen cabinets, does one apply the tile to the backsplash before installing the cabinets? or after the cabinets are in place?

Re: backsplash

Tile after the cabinets and counter are in place. Be sure to leave a 1/8" gap between the tile and the counter, the tile and the walls, the tile and the cabinets, the tile and any wood trim.... you get the idea.

Re: backsplash

Like Houston said, and the reason fot it is: If you mount the cabinets after the tile, they will be the width of the backsplash away from the wall.

Re: backsplash

Like they said ^^^
