No baseboards in bathroom

We are currently renovating our bathroom. We have vinyl flooring with white painted baseboards. We are replacing the floors with a raised grainy porcelain tile. I do not want baseboards in the bathroom, because I want to show off the floor. I would like to see the tiles end at the wall with no border. We will paint the bathroom after the floor is finished with SICO kitchen and bathroom paint. Does anyone think that this will work? I don't like baseboards and hope to slowly eliminate them as we work on other rooms in the house.Below are samples of the look that I am trying to achieve.ImageImageImageImage

In the end, we opted for baseboards and the contractor installed them. We still aren't finished with the bathroom, but in case anyone was wondering what happened. See below for a sneak peak.ImageImage

I'll look into the 3M tape. I'm using the SICO kitchen and bathroom paint, because it claims to be a "paint ideal for high-traffic rooms that are prone to steam and moisture build-up. It is ultra washable and scrubbable, and resist mildew and stains." Our bathroom is small, so I was even thinking of using only swiffer products to clean the floor. Any other comments are appreciated.

Hi, njones: Interesting. Your house should include what you like — and if you are opposed to baseboards, then I see no reason to keep them. (I'm personally a fan of them, but that's cause I'm all about trim, crown moulding, etc.) They're primarily used to give a finished look for the join between the walls and ceilings.

Here are some photos from our website of bathrooms without baseboards:
