Tiling a narrow curb - looking for ideas!

Hi all
I tried to maximize space in my small bath by cutting a KBRS curb in half ..feeling I should have planned this a bit better because I now have a 2" wide curb...2" high inside, 3 1/2" high outside. Pan floor will be same basketweave as bath floor - walls are 3 x 6 white subway. I was initially considering a cultured marble sill/threshold curb top - but the easily available beveled ones are 4" wide..leaving me more overhang that I would like. I'm having trouble finding a relatively simple solution but hoping I'm just not creative enough.
Any ideas? Appreciate the forum's help!

You could tile over it with bullnose tile. Another option would be to have a piece of stone or quartz cap cut and polished at a fabricator.

Thanks Peter. I think that might be the most straightforward strategy since there is a matching 2" bullnose for my subway tile. Thanks for laying that out for me.

I had a similar narrow curb and simply used the main field tile and had the Schluter profile on the edge (see photo). The inner part of the curb uses the same profile. It all worked well.

HD sells a 2" curb you might be able to use...or, if you have a wet saw, you could cut down a 4" curb...or even possibly use it as is, although with a bit of an overhang.

Were it mine, I would have a granite yard cut down from some scraps, exactly the size you want. Shouldn't be more than 50 or 60 bucks......

I'd go ahead and tile the inside and outside of the curb and hang the slab over like Laz said. It might be a little over 1/2 inch but won't look bad in my opinion.
