Question how to remove reflexes from a glossy, patterned floor?

hi, any faster or better idea how to remove the reflexes from the glossy stone-floor by preserving the texture and style of the glossy floor, as it is important?

you see much detail of the texture as the image is scanned at nearly 1meter width at 300dpi. i reduced the size and enclosed a cropped one at 72 dpi here.

i would select the floor and fill it with grey then add some noise. then try to lay it above the original at 90% with soft light maybe?
but the noise probably looks different than the actual texture.

i would also have a scan of the floor at 1 squaremeter pattern shoot straight 1:1, would you rather use that pattern and duplicate it 20times perspectively? maybe loooks too artificial. i dont know

later i will bring back some of the reflexes with a duplicate layer
at 25% above.

If extra shots are available great, I did one like this a few months ago and the vanishing point tool in PS CS2 is perfect for this job. I did initially aint some of the highlights and in my case shadows ou but the I cloned using vanishing point to a new layer, blended all together and it came out great. That tool takes alot of pain from this kind of shot.
