What floor tiles should I use?

So I have a small 10' x 10' room. Almost all of the things are white. I am planning to paint the ceiling a very dark blue like the darkest part of the night sky (so as to add glow-in-the-dark heavenly bodies) and the wall, a very watery blue. What color of tiles should I use? (I'm supposed to use tiles, not actual floor boards. I've no other choice but to use tiles... Sigh.) Thanks in advance. :)

I voted for #2, even though I wanted to vote for both #2 and #4! I think they'll go great with the blues you're using. Tile choice #2 reminds me of waves so I like it with the "watery" blue color theme, but think it would look better in plank style like #4.

I voted for 3 because I tricked myself into thinking it's wood. The other ones look too cold, and like they will get dirty looking.

It would be helpful if we could see the room, though.

@redpoint, haha. That was actually my intention because I wanted floor boards but since there's too much cons in using them, I decided to have tiles that look like wood instead... I wish I could post the picture but it's not painted yet. Sorry. I really wish I could, though. And thank you so much for the advice. I will consider it. :)

The paint will look a bit like this: the dark one for the ceiling, the middle one (but a little bit more watery, I think this blue looks a bit sky-ish instead of watery, but I may also consider this color). :)

I failed you, guys. I looked for all of these tiles in four big stores and did not find any of these. So, I just used that (on top of this) color palette instead and got an almost plain cream design instead. (But it had tiny random navy dots) Sigh... I'll just use this for future reference.... I AM SO SORRY GUYS! :(

Can you wait until the room is painted the way you want it and then put some samples in to see how they look in the light? I am all about the setting and the light. Good luck and be confident! You are making the best decision you can for what you want. BTW I have wood floors everywhere and love them. Don't be afraid of real wood if that is what you want.
