Bathroom tile color coordination

I'm stumped on a shower surround color to use and could use a second (or third) set of eyes.

I have a floor tile picked out and a wall color - but I'm not sure how to handle the tub surround. I'm leaning towards a subway tile but I don't think white is the correct color (and I hate trying to keep it looking white.)

The bathroom itself isn't very big - about 5x7 including the tub area.

Any reason you can't use the same tile on the surround as you plan for the floor?

I'm with blondsense. To me, continuing the same style & color would tend to make the room look larger, or at least not any smaller. I like the tile color and style, too.

Definitely avoid white tile!

We made that mistake and put it on the floor. I have to clean it almost daily. Huge mistake. Go with another color.

I'm with the others too, I think I would go with what you already have planned for the floor in the shower as well, it would be easier to clean too (less grout).

I would NOT go with the same tile on the floor. I would pick a slightly darker tone and smaller tiles to give it punch of color. I don't like sameness.

Good luck with it!
