I have remodeled my bathroom. Moved all plumbing in slab, redid concrete, broke out walls plastered, mud etc. Now I need advise. Should I prime and paint the drywall then put up trim around doors and windows then tile the fl;oor then install tiolet and cabinets? I must tile before installing vanity cabinets and toilet. Tub is already in. Any suggestions??
here's what the room looks like now..
raw new drywall mudded and sanded
concrete floor with mortar bed on top
raw window (new) installed- no trim
2 doors - need to change moulding
tub installed- skirt I will tile
no vanity or sink installed
no toilet installed yet
pluming rough ins finished
electrical finished

Since it is the bathroom with excessive moisture, I would prime all of the areas first, then place at least one coat of a quality semi-gloss paint on top. If you are concerned with marring the finish when you install the trim and other furnishings, you can put the second coat on after everything else is installed.
