Help deciding flooring, please!! Engineered hardwood dilemma.

We are ripping out the carpet in our house on the main floor, and I need advice on what to do. The engineered hardwood we have in the entry & kitchen is in good conditon, and replacing that isn’t an option right now. This type of engineered hardwood (maple 3 strip) is no longer made. I want engineered hardwood where the carpet currently is, but it won’t be an exact match, but it would be maple (same type of wood). There is a 3” option and 5” option for natural maple available; if we installed them the opposite direction as the existing hardwood (since it won’t be an exact match), would that that look okay? I will not put vinyl plank wood look next to real wood.
