Engineered wood in the living areas, carpet in the bedrooms, tile in the kitchen and bathroom, that is the most common.

Remember if you don't like carpet, you could do the engineered wood in the bedrooms and add area rugs.

Definitely wood. Or Mannington Adura has great wood looks in their Luxury Vinyl Tile. We install a lot of it. Check flooring dealers in your area for the types of wood they've installed with your climate. Otherwise wood (engineered) is a great choice. There are also some new laminates that are so much better than the original choices.
Then I'd go with area rugs.
