Framing for alcove tub

Finished gutting and framing repair of bathroom and am now preparing to frame the linen closet. Will have 30" x 60" alcove tub with one wall being a linen closet. I am planning now for the framing of this closet and trying to determine how far beyond the 30" tub the wall should extend. We will be tiling the shower area, and tiling halfway up the wall in the rest of the room. So I will be tiling beside the tub, wrapping around the corner and then up against the door frame.

So how far out beyond the 30" tub should the linen closet wall extend?

I hope this all makes sense.

To make it a whole lot easier on yourself make it about 6".
A whole lot easier to finish.

Thanks - that's what I was looking for. I can make it anything I want (within reason) so wanted to make a wise choice
