One thing that you could do is semi-recess it so it's maybe 1-2 inches in the wall with insulation behind it. Then have a sill, or shelf, at the bottom that protrudes out a bit.

What I do is use 2-inch mesh tape on all seams and corners. It helps to strengthen the joint a little bit but keep the buildup to a minimum.

For me, a 3-inch cut isn't a reason to stray from a full tile at the door. What you have is a 5x8 bathroom. So a toilet is taking up roughly 50% space next to the tub. Additionally, there is usually...

You could install another layer of 1/4 inch over the top of it. If you do, then you'll want to thinset the two layers together and stagger the seams. Perhaps start full at the top and cut the sheet...

This house was built in the '60s and it's the master bath. It's pretty tough for me to demand that it get covered when it's got 50+ years of history behind it.
