Which flooring color would work better for the bedrooms in this house?

We need to replace the carpets in the master and the other 2 bedrooms.

To keep costs down, and for continuity, we were considering doing the same flooring we have in the main areas of the house (engineered hardwood), even though the current color wouldn't be our first choice. But so far I have not been able to find the exact floor - so I think we're going to have to do something else.

This is not our forever home, so we want something that looks good and complements the house and doesn't hurt resale, but we don't want to invest the way we might if this was our forever home.

We don't want to do carpet because we have pets, so we are looking at other engineered woods.

This is the floor in the main area of the house:

(It is not as red and orangey as it looks like in some pictures.)

Would a brown like this work well?

Or would it be better to do something light, like this:

We are not sure in which direction to go. We tend to like brown tones better - but we are not sure f that is what works best with the current floor so it looks the most attractive.

What do you think?
