polished or honed marble herringbone for bathroom floor

last month
last modified: last month

We're still working on our master bath. I got a good price on some gorgeous Calacatta gold marble 12x24 polished which I plan to install on the shower walls. I've decided to keep it fairly simple with 2x8 Calacatta gold herringbone on the floors. (Each piece in the herringbone is 2"x8")

Our supplier has both honed and polished. I think either will do visually, since the floors are a different area from the walls. BUT I am worried about honed being more difficult to maintain and more easily stained. On the flip side, I'm scared about slipping on polished. Should I be worried given all the grout lines on a 2x8 herringbone?

Edit: The walls are polished and the question is whether to put polished or honed on the floor given the above concerns.
