need a tile recommendation

I am trying hard to talk my parents out of tiling the entire master bath floor and walls with real marble.

Can any of you recommend a tile that looks just like a white marble? All the marble look tile I see at local box stores looks and feels way too fake. Looking for a large format for floor and walls and smaller hex for shower floor.

Thanks

Stone peak makes some 4x12, 12x12 12x24 24x48 polished, honed, or matte finish. I can look the name up if they might be interested

thanks,
she just picked out this: https://www.flooranddecor.com/24-x-4...100559194.html

It is 4 feet x 2 feet tile. Why does everything have to be so out of the ordinary??

Any special concerns when installing a tile this huge for bathroom walls and floor? Thankfully the shower floor will be 2x2 hex....

FLAT FLAT FLAT walls and floor will go a long way to making your installation go smoothly. What ya got for a wet saw? You might have to get creative to make your cuts depending on your lay out.
