House Reno's Flooring/Layout Questions

My wife and I are having a bunch of house renos done.

It is now time to pick out the flooring and we are having a hard time deciding where to transition to different flooring.

House plans:

I'm no interior designer.
I would like to hear what other people think we should do.

Personally, I would only do tile in the entry and bathrooms, not in the kitchen. Hardwood instead.

I'll have to throw in on this. Having had to pull hardwood from kitchens and replace with tile due to water damage, I'd go with the tile from the get-go in all three areas.

I am doing an estimate on one, now. Not so much warping, etc, but deep discoloration of the oak. Water has, over time, eked its way into the seams and spread. They could probably refinish it, but would be riding the same bull in a few years.

They have opted for a tile similar to this, but darker. Woodgrain stands out and looks like real wood. Daltile, Parkwood Beige 7 in. x 20 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile (10.89 sq. ft. / case), PD12720HD1P2 at The Home Depot - Tablet
