What is 'in' in the world of kitchen tiles?

Took me about half an hour to choose a kitchen, but absolutely hours to find the right wall and floor tiles. I really like metro tiles but they have been trendy for many years now, and I don't know how long the fashion will last... thinking about Moroccan style tiles, but they are brave! Any ideas/suggestions? It will be a white shaker style kitchen with traditional cup handles, and oak counter tops/white walls. Very safe and neutral.

Here are my top three:

I think geometrical patterns are becoming IN. I'll try to link.

My kitchen is very modern with white cupboards and a grey slate worktop and we have these tiles which i still love after 3 years. White with a grey/black mosaic Line which would work well with metro tiles.

Like this for the floor?

Third picture down is what I'm thinking of.

Not sure geometric is the right word.

Love your tangier tiles

I looked at so many different tiles. I knew I wanted patterned tiles, preferably Moroccan but they were so expensive! In the end I picked these -

They are just to go in above a range cooker. We have chosen upstands around the walls and we've painted above. They look really good and I'm thrilled with them. I just hope the tiler does a good job of putting them up when he arrives on Friday. I have numbered them in the design I want them put up hmm

It was the most difficult decision in the entire room!

I meant to add I avoided metro tiles as I think they look a little dated now. Although Although if I was just tiling the walls I might have gone with them over a larger space.
