I live in North Carolina, and I am trying to decide on the flooring in my home. I have an open floorplan downstairs, with no doors between the rooms. The staircase is in the center of the downstairs and wraps around, with the kitchen/breakfast nook, dining/living room, and foyer around it. I am torn between putting hardwood flooring in the entire downstairs or putting hardwood flooring in the foyer, and living/dining room, and putting tile in the kitchen/breakfast nook. Both options offer benefits: the hardwoods only gives a uniform, continuous look in the entire downstairs and the tile in the kitchen/breakfast nook provides ease of cleanup. Which option should I choose?

Thanks in advance,

Note: I will cross post this to other home boards as well.
