Lifestyle | Kitchen Tile Blah

I need some help and advice from all of you lovely folk. My new landlord for the new house we will be renting has told me that we could pick out the new tile for the kitchen. You see, there is a huge hole in the current kitchen tiling which is not a surprise given that it was last laid down in the 70’s! The problem with picking out new tiling is that 1) I’ve never done this before and have no idea what I’m doing and 2) if I owned the home I would paint those ugly cabinets white and get new fixtures thus allowing for more flexibility in selecting new tile. However, I dont own this home so I dont plan on painting those cabinets and need to find something that will compliment what is already there.

As a reminder, here is the current (and only picture) that I have of the house’s kitchen:

The current renters suggested choosing gray tiling to go with the gray in all the other rooms that they had had painted in the house – literally every room is gray. While the gray is much improved from the creamy white that was there before, it is a rather dark color and I dont necessarily want to further permeate the house with it.
Today, I had lunch with my extended family and they suggested I select a lighter cream/beige tile to match the counters and to offset the dark wood of the cabinets. I absolutely do not want white tile as they are a #$%@ to keep clean. But I’ve found a few options on Home Depot’s website that I think could work given the circumstances. Any favorites?? Any other suggestions?? It seems that almost all kitchen vinyl is fairly unattractive in general.
