We rent our home out for parties, so the hardwood gets a lot of use. Wear spots eventually show, but our floor is rustic and can absorb them in the look. As for moisture, there is a water base catalyzed sealer, "Street Shoe". It is expensive, but it will hold up to water spills. We had a small flood with no damage.

Iizzim34, we installed Flooret Rigid Planks about a month ago--they look beautiful, and are comfortable under my bare feet. We have a beach house (new build) and chose the color Sutton.
