bamboo floating/click or linoleum sheet

I have 5 active kids. We homeschool, our house is small, our yard is sandy. In addition to my kids, there are lots and lots of neighbor kids traipsing through the house. The kitchen is a VERY high traffic area. I'm about to do a major re-do of the kitchens and bathrooms.

I am not allowed to do tile in the kitchen, so in terms of function AND form, what do you vote for, bamboo click-together or linoleum (not vinyl) sheet ?

I used sheet linoleum in the kitchen and it was great. We got a few scratches over time but they didn't really show up. You do need to consider seam placement and style.

I wouldn't do anything click in a room that might get water. (Because in my house, it'll get water.)

RE: bamboo floating/click or linoleum sheet

We are getting ready to do our kitchen and main living area in the end of March. Need a bit warmer weather here in New jersey before we open walls, replace windows etc. We have two dogs, a rather damp yard, mulch, sand, dirt, pebbles you name it and it comes in with the fur kids. We chose a beveled edge wood plank luxury vinyl (Arno Smoked Oak) from Karndean's Da Vinci collection. It is not cheap. Great warranty. i would not go click or engineered in my kitchen. My friend has another color in his indoor / outdoor wet porch, on his farm. 10 years old look like new. They have a good web site.
