Backsplash or under cabinet light first?

Our kitchen remodeling is about to be done. Should install backsplash first or under cabinet light first?

Under cabinet light, especially if you have to try and get a wire from cabinets on one side of the opening for the hood fan to the other

definitely under cabinet lighting first for wiring and power from an outlet.

Our builder did the under cabinet lights first, then the backsplash.

Thanks, folks. Actually, the wiring and outlets have been done. I was just wondering if we should put the backsplash on first or the lights first. If the lights first, we need to cut the backsplash tiles around the lights.

I don't understand why tiles would need to be cut to go around the lights. If the wiring is done and there is a lead to where the lights would go, that should be all you need done before tiling.

Why would you need to cut tile to suit the lights?
