Well, installing a 6 inch high baseboard would probably be the fastest, cheapest and easiest way to go.
What you may find, however, is that tiling isn't a uniform height off the floor. In that case, you can still install a baseboard that fits tight to the bottom of the tiling, and then a shoe molding at the bottom between the baseboard and the floor to hide any gap there.
In commercial kitchens and hospitals it's common to see the flooring rising up the wall to make a baseboard. The reason for doing this is to promote more efficient and effective cleaning. You can mop a flooring that curves up the wall to clean it quickly and effectively, but you can't effectively mop the dirt out of a 90 degree corner.
