Here's a picture of my shower with an eight inch piece of granite on top of the six inch wide curb.

8" granite

I've gone both ways in both places, but my preference is for solid pieces, for a couple of reasons. First, it gives the glass guy a better surface to work with, and secondly, it's just that much more protection against water intrusion. You can also extend the piece past the surface of the wall (or inside of the curb) so as to provide for a drip edge, making it that much easier to keep under it clean, as well. In either case, though, you want to make sure the area is waterproofed before you install either the tile or the slab.

Keep in mind that on the floor, you're not going to be drilling and mounting anything through the tile.
