Existing oak wood floors are too low to match with new wood in kitchen

In our old house, the dark oak floors have been sanded many times so that it's no longer practical to add a new solid floor in the adjacent kitchen, which has an old, worn out engineered floor that sits about 1/2" higher than the wood floors. This is not open concept, but old farmhouse style with swinging door to dining room and separate door to family room and dutch door to outside. Tile or stone would raise the floor considerably with backer board. There are some wide plank oak engineered floors that are just 3/8 that could probably meet the other floors in height, but then it's rustic wide plank butting up against the narrow boards at the doorways.. floors would both be oak and stained to match. Just can't figure what to do in the kitchen when I tear out the old floor. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
