sealing a honed tile bathroom floor and shower walls


I have just put honed white carrera marble on my bathroom floor and shower walls - do I need to seal it; if so what product do you recomment - will the sealing change the finish?
Thank you

Marble in a shower huh? OK. Yes you need to seal it. Buy a high quality, ($30-50 per pint), penetrating sealer. It will not change the looks of the stone or grout in any way.

Too late now, but can you tell us the "method" of installation and types of products used? Is the shower floor tiled too? Was any waterproofing used? Did you do it yourself?
