Good Questions: How High Should I Tile My Shower?

Long time viewer, first time emailer, first time tiling anything. I would appreciate any insight the AT community could provide. I am renovating my bathroom which is the same size and is laid out exactly like this. I'm doing the walls with white subway tile and the floors with a light gray and white hex pattern. My question: do I tile the shower walls up to the ceiling or leave 2 feet of wall that can be painted to contrast the tile? A pro to tiling to the ceiling would be to draw the eye up and make the room look larger but having the painted wall showing seems like it would balance out the room. Any thoughts are very appreciated, thanks. Mike
