Is it normal to tile the wall straight to a door jam without architraves? we either have a choice to have a really narrow door with architraves or widen the door and have no architraves.
What will look the best?
I have attached a photo of our door.
The left hand side we have removed and are considering whether to remove the right hand side for a bigger door.

Can't really tell from that shot, is that the jam or the frame, I'm thinking frame seeing there's frame above?
Short answer there's no right way to do anything like this, there's better finishes than others, you do what works and looks best for your bathroom as long as it's to code.

That is the door frame that we have half removed as the bath won’t fit in. Once the floor is tiles we will bring the bath in and re frame. Then we would need to add the door jam.
The smaller door option means the door is 680 - is that to code? Or does the door have to be a certain width?

Best practice is a internal metal angle to join your wall with the cieling and tile on top. My only concern would be movement of house. I would imagine it will crack the grout.
