How to change marble floors?


I have bought a house that has marble floors, completely the same on the first floor and the entire stairway. It has floor heating, so it is not cold in wintertime and actually nice and cool in summer. Except on the stairs, surely. BUT, it goes on my nerves. It is a dull boring beige and brown and I would like it to be either shiny and stay like that - I have tried waxing and almost broke my neck, even though it was shiny for a little while - or covered with something washable. I do not want rugs, I have dogs and cat and rugs are not really practical. Does anybody have a suggestion?
