Do marble floors in bathrooms get slippery??

I love the look of Carrera marble in the bathroom but I'm concerned that it would be really slippery. Is that a problem with marble floors in the bathroom?

I don't know yet , I hope I'll know in a couple of weeks. I just installed my calacata marble tile floor yesterday . Waiting for the rest of the bathroom to be done . I already bought floor mats for the shower , tub, and in front of the sinks. I'll let you know if you can wait.

Polished can be more slippery than honed. More grout lines equals more traction. ie, at the extremes, a mosaic will afford more traction than a slab.

Once it etches, it's not so slippery or shiny any more. Starting off with honed marble helps the traction and to conceal the etches.

We've only been using ours for a couple of weeks. It's honed and I don't find it slippery at all. We also have mosaic on the shower floor.

i have a polished marble bathroom floor and haven't had any trouble at all with 'slipperyness'- they're about 12 or 13" tiles... i do have rugs in front of the shower, tub and vanity... but, not once have i felt my feet slip on the floor when on the bare tile.

Thanks I really love the look of marble floors. So would you recommend keeping tiles on the smaller size. I would prefer no smaller than12". My floors now are the real small tiles and I'm tired of the look.
