Kitchen Floor Advice

We need to make a decision soon. I really don't know what will be best -
we currently have wooden floorboards that are desperately scratched and too pale, and have been thoroughly christened by potty training toddlers and incontinent puppies. But we are looking at a space of around 50 square metres so if we could rescue the floor it would save £££s.

However, I love dark parquet floors. And I also love pristine white ceramic floor tiles, or modern flag stone style tiles.

What to do? How rescuable is an old wooden floor? How dark can one stain it?And would white painted floorboards be completely barmy?

What kitchen floor did you decide on and why? My budget (if we don't rescue the existing floor) is around £40-50 per square metre. (Excluding fitting.)

Any advice gratefully received!

I've just ordered some gorgeous limestone in the sale
www.mandarinstone.com/product/_/72/dijon-tumbled-limestone-tile/#.U8p4LVaz4jI
It's not down yet but has arrived and is very pretty.
I chose it I liked it and the sales team told me it was practical blush

I also love the look of big white ceramic tiles but a little research here & IRL soon changed my mind - consensus was if you have pets or kids don't bother unless you're happy mopping at least once a day.
