Correspondingly, should you paint walls behind kitchen cabinets?
So, if you're installing new cabinets, most professional house painters would prefer to do their work after the cabinets are installed. If you are doing the painting yourself, we would generally recommend priming and painting first, then have the cabinets installed, then do any necessary touchup.
Likewise, do I need to tape drywall behind cabinets? If you ever plan to clean it then it should be finished. If it will come in contact with water or grease will land on it then it should be finished. If it's behind a cabinet where you'll never see it then that's pretty common to leave it unfinished. Painted No, taped and mudded yes.
Considering this, should you paint before or after installing cabinets?
It is best to paint the kitchen cabinets before you paint the walls. In fact, we suggest painting the cabinets before you even finalize your choice for the wall color.
Do I need primer on drywall?
When You Need a Primer You need a high-solids primer to prevent bleed-through and uneven coloring. You should also prime drywall before hanging wallpaper on it. The primer seals the paper and joint compound so that the wallpaper glue doesn't soak in and dry out.
