But there's another dimension to these incredibly diverse floor and wall coverings that often gets overlooked.

How thick are tiles?

Tile thickness may not be something you'd notice in a finished job, but knowing how thick tiles are can be very useful when planning a renovation, especially for understanding how high your floor may end up.

There's no single standard thickness for wall and floor tiles - different types of tiles for different purposes are likely to be different thicknesses. That said, any tiles that are the same and from the same batch will be the same thickness.

If your tiles are different thicknesses, there's likely been an issue with that batch. Read this page for more information and contact your Beaumont Tiles store before you start laying the tiles to get this fixed.

The exception to the above is with some natural quarried stone products. These are split from larger slabs and there is sometimes a range of natural variation in thickness. Any good tiler who is experienced with natural stone products will be able to account for any thickness variations when laying the tiles.

In general, porcelain tiles may range from as thin as 3.5mm, like our ultra-slim yet ultra-large slab tiles through to 20mm thick for the toughest porcelain tile pavers. The vast majority of porcelain tiles are 6mm to 10mm thick and a tile in this range will serve most purposes.

We recommend asking our expert staff about the thicknesses of your tiles before laying. Dry laying before you apply your tiles with adhesive is also a great way to ensure the thickness is even and the tiles will be level.
