Penny rounds for shower floor?

We are having troubles with the tiled shower floor in our new house. See my thread on that here if interested.

It is possible that the remedy will include replacing the tile. If so, I will need/want to choose replacement tile in short order. I know I do not want natural stone tile. I am thinking porcelain.

How are penny rounds for this application? I know all that grout is good for traction, but how bad is it for cleaning? And are penny rounds harder to set properly than other small tiles?

A quick google search turned these up and I like them. I'm thinking with a medium grey grout.


Here is a snapshot of the existing materials. The bathroom is huge so there is a lot of the grey herringbone tile (which I like). And the shower walls are plain white subway tile, which I also like.
