Timber or tiles

I have recently purchased a lovely old solid 60’s home that I am planning to fully renovate. It has a mix of tiles and timber through the living, dining and kitchen. I would like to replace with one flooring throughout but I’m stuck on timber vs tiles. The timber sample in the picture is a Boral Engineered Blackbutt which looks lovely but I’m very worried about scratches and durability with two kids and a dog. Is there anyway with tiles for it to still bring a sense of warmth? Light travertine? I absolutely love the durability of tiles but I’m worried about it feeling stark as we live in a cold climate. We would definitely have lovely big rugs through living and dining with tiles. Thanks for your thoughts.
