How high would the baseboard trim if ceramic tile is used ?

So if someone uses ceramic tile for molding or trim then how high would the tile be off the ground ? Would 4" be a typical maximum height ?

Thanks

Don't understand your question. You have a wall of ceramic tile and you want to bring it down to the floor or as close as possible to add molding at floor level?

You can bring your tile all the way to the floor. Then use wood (1/4 round) molding glued or nailed to floor. Or use ceramic tile made for floor trim, boarders or edging. You can get it to match your wall tile.

Depends. If you use 8" tile it makes sense to cut two 4's out of each piece to eliminate waste. If you have 12" tile, you "could" go up to 6" tall with no waste. You could go more or less it just means more cutting.

Agreed. 4", as you said would be a typical tile base height, but there are no rules.

For example a bath vanity toekick could be 4" or higher than that and still look nice.

The bullnose trim, aka battiscopa for virtually all international floor and wall tiles is about 3" high. I usually went about 3.25" or so. Matter of taste. The old fashioned sanitary base used mainly in North America was usually 4". So 3-4" for residential in common.
