Can't decide on wood look tile or Luxury vinyl planks for Kitchen!

I was so set on getting wood look tile until my friends told me to check on Luxury Vinyl, and after doing some reading here on GW, I am almost convinced to switch to LVP/LVT. BUT then I see someone's beautiful tiles, I am not so sure again! I like the durability of the tiles and that we can drag furniture on it with no problem of scratching it or damaging it, but then I like the LVP for being warm and not so hard on foot.

We are doing about 1000 sqft for kitchen plus family room and entry way, (the rest of the house is carpet for bedrooms and a loft). We have two boys and a dog, a pool right outside the family room, got a big yard with lots of dirt, boys will probably bring some of that in all the time.... Houses in my neighborhood go about a little over a mil (not ours because we bought it a fixer), they mostly are retired with no little kids running around and mostly have real wood floor. We are in our 40s and plan to retire in this house and not selling anytime soon.

What should I use, Wood look tiles or Luxury Vinyl? Thank you for your help!
