I have white subway tile in mine, and whatever they used for grout is still snow white after six years.  The floors and counters are Carrera marble.

Tiles for sure.  They look MUCH nicer.  I've never seen slabs in bathroom, esp not in luxury homes.  I hear you in terms of ease of cleaning, but I don't think I'd want to sacrifice the look.

Agree, the water will benetrate into inside causing tiles to fall out. Big time section 1 repair cost. Plastics are OK also.

The subway and mosiac tiles are very beautiful, though a slab of quartz is beautiful also.  Totally agree with having no grout to clean, but thin grout doesn't seem to be as difficult as wider grout.  Let us know which you select Sally K. & David L. Hanson, as I'm sure it will be awesome!
