Bathroom base moulding

We're putting white, wood, colonial style base moulding throughout the house, but we don't want to put wood base in the bathroom. I can't find a vinyl base that matches the style of the wood base. I can find vinyl in the same height, but not exactly matching style. Does it have to match the rest of the base in the house? If so I may have to consider using tile as base, but I really wanted white since the bathroom is dark gray walls and shower tiles and light gray floor. Also the floor tile does not offer a bull nose tile so even that would not match the floor exactly.

If you are stuck on wood and not tile why not just go with the same? Prime and one coat the back. Prime and titebond your corners and walk.

Why not wood base? It's done all the time.
As mentioned just seal it on all sides.
Plastic is a pain to work with, it likes to melt instead of cutting, chips, cracks if it's nailed to close to an outside edge.
