One other thing to consider when deciding whether
to install cabinets before or after the ceramic -
be sure that the dishwasher will go in (and out).
You need at least 1 1/4 inch of subfloor under the
ceramic, and cement backer board is almost a
necessity. Add the thicknesses of the backer
board, the tile, and an allowance for the mastic
and see where you are. I have the same situation
right now and am in the process of installing
Wilsonart laminate tiles in order to avoid the
height problem. Good luck and keep us posted on
your progress.
