how high or thick is typical floor tiling?

I am finishing my basement bathroom and the vanity we have chosen is an open style. So we will have chrome pipes b/c they will be visible. the plumber has indicated that they need to know exactly where the vanity will be b/c we are using chrome. We have the vanity so it's easy to determine where it will be located on the wall. However, we are having the plumbing done prior to the tiling so I need to know how much to allocate for the height or thickness of the tiling. the basement floor is concrete and we will have heated floors.

I'm guessing it will be 1" - 2" high but have no clue.

Any advice would be appreciated
