I'm installing porcelain tiles in my bathroom this weekend.  I will be covering the edges of the tile at the wall with a baseboard, but I'm unsure of how to cover this gap at the bath tub.  What is the best way to do this.  I have considered just caulking the gap, but I'm hoping for something that will look better than that.

RE: How do I abut tile to bath tub
The gap between the tub and the tile is normally either caulked or grouted in. I would suggest using a flexible caulking that either matches your tub or your grout. Just get as close to the tub with your cuts as possible to minimize this joint.
