I also vote for an engineered hardwood or such wherever you can. Even in bedrooms, if they want it soft they can supply their own rugs and such.
Last year I had to replace the old carpet in the basement of my rental, and went with carpet tiles, just so that it supplied a bit more insulation and sound dampening. Plus side is, they are relatively cost effective, and can be replaced one by one if damaged, instead of a whole room. The carpet was probably 35-40 years old, so it looked ages better as well.
A bit of advice as well, make sure that you have some extra of whatever material you choose, in case you have to replace a section, maybe a dishwasher leaks, toilet overflows, etc.
