I am considering new kitchen flooring options to replace a 15 year old vinyl floor. Currently, the height of the wood floor in the adjoining living room and the kitchen is about even. What is an acceptable transition that will keep people from tripping upon entering the kitchen from the living room? I was thinking of tile. But, with backer board, tile and thin set, won't I be stepping up a half inch? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!

You will have to tearout existing vinyl and underlay to do tile, and still then you may have a height difference. You could tear out vinyl and underlay, and install lam floor, then use a t-molding if the height is near the same, or install vinyl on top of existing vinyl, and use a 1" flat metal for a transition. You can only install over existing vinyl if it is 1 layer and it's not perimeter spread.
