Tile or Luxury Vinyl Tile adjacent to Hardwood

Closing on a house in 3 weeks and need advice for flooring. I would like to replace kitchen tile with either tile or LVT. Entire house except bathrooms and kitchen are hardwood. I'm not interested in extending hardwood into kitchen.

Would LVT be a good alternative replacing current tile? Currently hardwood and tile are even. If I installed say 5mm LVT directly over existing tile would the T- molding look weird since it will be at a little slope?

For those recommending tile, what pattern ( off set staggered, herringbone, etc) and size would make the kitchen look open? FYI- plan on repairing cabinets lighter color to make the open feel.
