Master ensuite

I am trying to decide if i should choose polished marble or honed marble or travertine. I don't know if polished is too slippery for a bathroom?

Honed is less slippery than polished and Travertine can be filled and as smooth as polished marble.

Be very careful when choosing stone for a shower. Have you read this Ideabook?

What size are the tiles you will be using?

I have slipped on very polished tile myself. So that is why I recently nixed the idea of marble in our bathroom. We will be having small children visiting at intervals and I do not want to take a chance.

That is a smart call when little ones are around. Many of the new Porcelain Tiles have some good traction on them. Polished tile outside a tub or shower can get very slick and when two girls are chasing each other over a Barbie Fight they are not remembering to not run in the bathroom.

Even with small 2" tiles my little girls have slipped when bath time turns into play time!
