Front entrance design dilemma

Sandi Burola
last month

Hello! I’m looking for advice/guidance on what to do with the front of my house.
First, there is no defined foyer. To the left is a hallway that takes you to a powder room and laundry. To the right is our eventual living room/dining room. I’ve attached an floor plan although it doesn’t clearly outline the powder room. The hallway/laundry area was tile as you can see from the demo photos.
First, what flooring would you use? Engineered hardwood or tile and hardwood mix? The concern is about wet/snowy boots at the entry in the winter.
Second, any ideas on how to plan the laundry space? We’d like to make an entry from the garage but not sure whether to leave the hallway open or put another door? I’ve attached photos for reference. Thanks for your help!
