How thick are backsplash tiles?

A tile backsplash can make a massive difference in both kitchens and bathrooms, adding visual elegance and excellent protection to your walls. We know you have questions about your options, however, and we’d love to discuss that with you further.

For instance, you might wonder about the thickness of the backsplash tiles. Let’s talk more about that as you read along.

Tile backsplash info and options


One of the most popular backsplash materials is porcelain tile, but we recommend glass tile for many applications. These materials are durable,utterly impervious to liquids and stains, and offer some of the most beautiful décor additions.

Most tile options range from 3/16 to ¼ inch thick, but with the addition of mortar, you can expect an average thickness of ½ inch. Since backsplashes also serve as a cover for gaps between countertops and walls, we will be sure to measure and create the thickness that provides the best visuals and performance, all at the same time.

Choosing a great backsplash can even serve as a hypoallergenic feature in kitchens and bathrooms, resisting mold, mildew, and bacteria growth for a cleaner,healthier surface. It creates a much better air quality that your allergy sufferers will notice right away.
