What order to do things...

I am not sure if I am in the right forum or not but I figured it was the closest...

I am remodeling my house and have hung all new drywall. I haven't primed or put the trim up.

Should i prime and paint and then put the trim up or put the trim up first and then prime and paint.

My preferred method is to prime all the drywall, then install the trim, cabinets etc and prime and finish the woodwork [except the baseboard] then finish coat the walls. Enamel the base after the walls are done. IMO that's the most efficient way to paint an interior but it doesn't hurt to be flexible
