We have engineered hardwood (maple) and my son's dog scratched it up badly when he stayed here a few months. I was grateful that the laundry room flooded into the family room and was able to replace the floor. It also showed paw prints and I had to clean it every day. Maybe he was just a sweatier dog than others. Lol. BTW, I replaced it with the same floor but it's only the two of us so it looks good.

You do not have the personality to handle the "patina" of hardwood (patina is the nice way of saying "damage" or "age-related appearance"). I'm going to say "Good for you for knowing who you are and what you accept and won't accept in your flooring". I always say, "Homeowner Know thyself!". You do. Good. You are 10 steps ahead of people who want perfection but don't know they want it.

When it comes to someone who does not accept patina (aging) that leaves you with 4 options: concrete (polished, stained, epoxy, whatever makes you happy), ceramic tile, porcelain tile, stone or vinyl. That's it. We are done. No other options available for your personality type. None.

I would say concrete is out and so to the tile/stone options because your spouse is worried about being "too hard". Excellent. We are down to 1 option. Super easy to narrow down the choices when you know what you DON'T want.

Good. On to vinyl flooring. The "commercial" grade vinyls look commercial. The residential grade vinyls look cozy and "natural"...even though they mimic something else.

With your home and the dogs, I HIGHLY recommend working with the expensive stuff...the glue in place vinyl. Glue down vinyl planks (not all can be glued down...so choose wisely) are the toughest residential floors a professional flooring installer can put into a home. The planks are slightly cheaper than the click-together but the adhesive and the cost of install cause the price to SKYROCKET. This is the price of "perfection".

Many resilient flooring installers LOVE the performance of glue down vinyl planks. Especially the high-end brand names like Karndean. They have ZERO call backs for problems with install/performance.

Be aware that vinyl will, eventually, scratch. Oh...and concrete eventually scratches as well. So does porcelain. So does ceramic. So does stone. But these materials do it THE LEAST.

If you know you can't handle anything other than perfection (you don't like patina) then you will be spending more. That's OK. You will purchase a floor that will last a VERY long time. Quality will out perform low-end every time.

Thank you for your helpful replies. I always try and go for simple but between architect, contractor and husband, I feel like my voice gets list. But I can only blame myself trying to put in "pretty elements" to offset and soften a block space. I guess I should eliminate the hanging pendants lol

Sorry for the multiple replies ...but are there any recommended Benjamin Moore whites? Would anything creamy work to warm up the space?

Or you could lean a striking piece of art against the wall. Maybe add sheers...

I agree with the rug idea. I think you need a little texture and softness.

So many options. Our kitchen would look something like the below if we stopped at the upper cabinets, but replace the picture with our window.

I'm redoing my laundry room closet and need to find cabinets and close rod. How do I hang cabinets against tile?

Usually I install the cabinets first, then tile around them.

Simplest way is to add the Peel & Stick privacy films that are available in variety of designs & price-points.
