New 1,000 sq house in the woods: Wood or tile in kitchen?

The floor plan is very open. Kitchen, living room, dining is just one big room. Two small bedrooms and 2 smaller baths off the back.
I was thinking of just running wood through the entire house (other than baths), but worried about kitchen wetness. But I'm also worried about the coldness of tile in the winter and the transition between wood and tile in such a small area.
I would appreciate any suggestions.
