Help with flooring in hallway and stairs

I'm after a bit of advice and some opinions too :) We live in an old victorian rectory and I rather optimistically ripped up our carpets and plywood hoping to find a lovely timber floor underneath. Unfortunately it is a mish mash of broken planks, several different types of wood and gaps you could get your hand through. So I need to cover them up. I was looking at timber floors which are lovely however we had them in our previous house and with 3 children and 2 dogs they were terribly scratched and dulled after a few years. I really don't want carpet again as with the kids and dogs it's also a nightmare. Tiles would be too cold (can't put underfloor heating in) so it leads me to LVT. Would it be absolute sacrilege to put them in an old house? I also am not sure how I tie that in with the stairs. If I strip the treads and paint the risers white will it look odd next to the fake wood? Thanks.
