Question max size for wall Tile?

What is the recommended tile size for walls around tub/shower area? I wanted to use 13" x 13" porcelain tiles but not sure if this is ok. Please advise

Thanks in advance

Tile size is a matter of personal taste. More and more people are going with larger size wall tiles.

Thanks for the quick reply twelvepole. So as far as common practice or structurally there should be no problems installing this size tile on walls? Have you personally seen this size used on walls? If so what is your opinion on the look of say a 13 x 13 rather than say a 7 x 7

thanks again

Done all the time, go for it, just make sure you use CBU on the walls and modified thinset.
