Marble hex tiles on shower floor? Bill V or anyone?

13 years ago


We are renovating our basement and ready to tile a small 36x36 shower. I picked out marble hex 1 inch polished carrera for the shower floor after seeing it installed on many pictures on the web. I thought it would be fine if I used a good sealer like miracle 511.

Originally I was going get honed, but the guy at the tile store thought polished would be better.

I showed it to my tile installer today and he thinks it's a bad idea for the shower floor. When it gets wet it will get darker he said...but wouldn't the sealer prevent it?

I could always switch to the American oleon mosaic tile that looks like marble. But I would be out $175.

What should I do? Anyone out there have a marble shower floor that is holding up well?
