We are looking at remodeling our kitchen, including redesigning the cabinet layout, getting new cabinets, and refinishing the hardwood floor.
My question is, should the floor be refinished before or after the new lower cabinets are installed?
I would think refinishing the floor should happen 1st. It would be easier to sand and apply the finish without the cabinets and appliances in the way. It is not a large kitchen and has an Island that will be replaced (resized smaller). There is not a lot of room around the Island for a sanding machine.
