71” space with 60” tub with shower: ledge for extra space?

Hi there, we have a 60 inch tub with shower we’re playing into a space with a length of 71”. We’re thinking for the extra 11” we’ll have a sort of tiled bench/ledge. I was hoping this could be flush with the tub, but our contractor let us know it needs to be higher for drainage. The only example photos I’ve been able to find are…not the nicest. And I don’t understand why the ledges are so high. Some examples attached.

Anyone have ideas on how to make this look a bit more pleasing? We are not going to do built in shelves because there is a shower.
