Kitchen remodel -- which comes first, granite or cabinets?

CindyJ | May 7, 2012 07:44 AM

I'm looking for some guidance. Our kitchen remodeling project is moving very slowly. It seems every time I take one step forward, I take two steps back. My latest quandary is whether I should first choose the granite for the countertops and then choose the cabinet finish (which is likely to be paint/glaze), or to do it the other way around and choose the cabinetry first. They'll be custom-built cabinets, so the color (some shade of white/off-white) can be formulated to work well with the counters. OTOH, maybe I should choose a cabinet color I really love, and then find the granite to complement it. Is there a "best way" to approach this? Thanks!
