    Exposed aggregate is slip resistance. Honed aggregate is smooth and slippery. First is great for driveways and paths, second is great for alfresco areas. Normal concrete can be smooth or made a rough surface when finishing. If there is no budget then I would choose exposed aggregate, but it is expensive compared to normal poured concrete.
