1. Depending on the size of the place: Usually plain light colors help infuse more light, give a sense of a bigger room and also well suited for small areas because, simply, easy to clean! (Though this isn’t necessarily the rule of thumb). Anyways one can go with the usual whites but can overcome the boredom of this color by having a contrasting grout color, like red or black to get that old finish or even white for the flawless finish. If not whites, the hues of yellow and golden can also be used, and nowadays a major sell out color is Tuscany Gold.
2. Usage of the area: If your kitchen is prone to splatters, with small kids around, or pets messing up your Bath, better go with darker hues like shades of grey or brown colors from a forest and maybe even black with silvers and golden which look classic yet stylish. Grout, usually are used with dark tiles will be dark as well, maybe even black but no one messes up with contrasts of the opposite colors. Black and white, blue and green, red and yellow, or even you can contrast cold and warm hues. There won’t be a problem of stain marks on darker hues until the finishing is kept well intact.

Light colors such as light greys, whites and yellow require maximum effort as stains are easily seen on these colors whereas darker hues don’t show much.
