Honed or Polished Marble? - Please help!
I've decided on all carrara marble tiles in the two bathrooms we're remodeling. In the master, I'm going with a herringbone mosaic (1x2") on the floor and subways (3x6) with a mini brick trim on the walls. In the hall bath, I'm using subways on the walls and a basketweave mosaic with black accents on the floor.
Should I choose honed or polished? Is one more durable/less susceptible to etching and stains? Does one respond better to sealing? Should I use honed on floor and polished on walls? Because I'm using mosaics on the floors, I'm not concerned about the floors being too slippery if we go with polished, and I'm not really that concerned with stains -- (although I do have a toddler boy learning to potty train and a puppy is in our future, so maybe I should be worried about urine stains.)
Any guidance you can give would be great! Thanks!
