Walkway/Transition between two rooms

We are planning to hire a handyman to cut out about a 70-75” walkway between our kitchen and front room (used to be a formal dining room). We are leaving the engineered hardwood (it is 3/4” thick; and replacing carpet on this floor so that will be new. For the transition between the rooms, will it look okay for carpet to meet the hardwood? (adding a maple transition strip), or do we try to cut some existing hardwood from under the dishwasher to add on to the threshold so the floors meet in the middle of the walkway? OR would a window cutout look okay? I’d like more light in the kitchen & to be able to see my kids play while I am in the kitchen.
