Honed or polished carrara for shower? Please help

13 years ago

We are thinking of putting white carrara (12"x24" format) in our master bath shower. We have already picked honed carrara countertops, so honed seems to be the way to go for the shower. Our tile designer thinks polished is easier to keep clean - which seems to be at odds with the consensus here that honed does etch as much.

Am I crazy to put marble in the shower (and will I ever get the shower clean enough with just stone cleaner)? And if I am not totally crazy, should I go for polished or honed?
