In areas where your walls don't absolutely have to be tiled, paint is a great option. Use one specially formulated for bathrooms for its resistance to mildew. Many brands offer these. My favorite is Benjamin Moore's Aura Bath and Spa Matte Finish. I would love it in this sunny orange. What a great color for revving up your day in the morning.
Tip: Buy the best and most quiet fan you can get for your bathroom and put it on a timer. That may not sound like a design strategy for making your bathroom easier to clean, but it is. If you have a fan that sounds like a jet engine, you're less likely to turn it on and that will lead to an increase in mildew ... and that means more cleaning for you. A whisper-silent one is so quiet that you'll need a timer so you don't forget to turn it off.
