Small Bathroom: What size tiles should I use?

I live in a 2/2 condo and my master bathroom floor is 56 x 56, minus single sink cabinet.
Shower floor L: 55 W: 26, two side shower walls 30 x 78 and back wall 55 x 78.
Iím getting ready to retile floor & shower. The bathroom floor tile 13 x 13. My tile guy I hired suggests I tile the shower floor and walls with 13 x 13 tiles, plus a 2 x 2 tile boarder. Because itís a small bathroom and too many tile sizes wonít look good.
Is he correct? I would like the bathroom floor 13 x 13 tiles, shower floor with smaller tiles and the walls smaller than 13 x 13.
What should I do?
Thanks, Scotty13

Your the boss and who has to live with it, tell him what you want.
No way would I want small tiles as an outside border on a floor. To many gout lines to leak.
