I bought a 37 ping place in January and went with hardwood floors in the whole apartment with the exception of the kitchen, bathrooms and entrance area. The kitchen and bathrooms are too wet, and the entrance too dirty. The height difference between the hardwood floor and the lower tile floor in the entrance area is great for making sure dirt doesn't float in from where you place shoes.

Got a 1-year old that has already caused some marks in the hardwood floor, but for me I don't think it matters that much. I think it just gives it some character. The warmth the wood floor gives my apartment both when it comes to our feet and the overall visual feeling makes it definitely worth it for me.

Not sure if I would risk it in an old building though.
