I'm looking for the right tiles for my walk in shower (walls and floor)- min.grout and easy to clean.
Thanks

it's for a new building - contemporary vanity will be sapele w/ light colored countertop. Lot's of natural light - other than that everything is open.

Consider large format porcelain tile. Porcelanosa is an excellent source. http://www.porcelanosa-usa.com/home/products/tile.aspx

Hi Tville, consider DalTile Kimona Silk series ( textured ) for either the floor or the shower walls,
and Imola Koshi series ( smoother ) for the shower walls --

Be careful about minimizing grout - we wanted 5x5 tiles and the installer warned that they'd be slippery. He said 3x3 is really the largest tile you're safe with - and you should consider going smaller if you have kids (their feet are so much smaller, they have less contact w/grout to grip).

We ended up going with river stones... It's been 2 years and I love them.

I am not sure if walk in means you have a linear drain or just that there is no bathtub. If its the latter you may have to stick to 2x2 or smaller for the shower floor to accommodate the slope of the shower floor. And then do something else if you prefer that for the rest of the bathroom floor. So unless you have the linear drain it may be hard to have minimal grout in the shower.
