Narrow colorbar with tiledlayout

I've noticed that the colorbars in a "tiledlayout"-plot do not seem to widen increasing the width of the whole figure, making them much narrower than in a subplot-environment. In return there is more space available for the axes themselves. Is this behavior intended? Is there any way to change this?
Thank you very much in advance.
MWE:
h1 = figure;
tlt = tiledlayout(1, 2);
nexttile;
surf(rand(10));
colorbar;
nexttile;
surf(rand(10));
colorbar;
h.Position(3) = 2*h.Position(3);
%
h2 = figure;
ax1 = subplot(1, 2, 1);
surf(rand(10));
colorbar;
ax2 = subplot(1, 2, 2);
surf(rand(10));
colorbar;
h.Position(3) = 2*h.Position(3);

Hi
Referring this link might be helpful:
Colorbar is used to map data values into the colourmap. So, having its size small(clear enough) would be sufficient.

Thank you very much for your response and the provided link. Unfortunately, it seems to me that only the manual approach is possible.
I know that a narrower colorbar is sufficient for most applications. However, the possibility to retain the normal, broader colorbar would allow for a more consistent plot layout (in comparison to the old subplot outcome).
