Transitioning between tiles

Hello, I am looking for advice/opinions on transitioning between 2 tiles. In other words, my nook/kitchen area was tiled several years ago and I now want to tile my formal dining room and living room, but don't want the same tile as in the kitchen area. Is this acceptable? Would it look weird for the 2 tiles to be butting up against each other? I especially want to use larger tiles in the new area, while the kitchen area has 12" tiles. Suggestions? And of course, there is a bathroom off of the dining room that is another tile (plain white.)

I would'nt butt the new to the old, without maybe installing a border or decrotive tile to break up the two.

Yep, A decorative border that uses both colors ( old and new) would work

I'm partial to wood transitions, but an accenting tile or stone would be nice, too.

Wood? who said wood? I meant tile, not wood.
