Floor solutions: half quarry tiles, half suspended timber?

Our house is an old 30s cottage which was doubled in size in the 80s. What were the kitchen and 'back room' are now just one dining room and a separate kitchen was built as part of the extension.

The whole sitting room and dining room (now knocked through) is covered in carpet, I was hoping to pull this up and sand the floorboards instead - however, as a result of how the house was laid out originally, the dining room is half suspended timber floor and half quarry tiles (presumably laid on bare earth). I haven't pulled the carpet far back enough to see exactly how these butt up against each other, but you can feel a very slight ridge where the join would be.

Not sure what to do now.. is there a solution that means I can have wooden floors across the whole area? Budget is a big issue confused I think it would look too weird to preserve the two types of floor in that room - even though it would suit the purpose of the room, as only half is really dining space - because it would then go to yet more different types of flooring in the kitchen, back hallway, cloakroom and study. I was planning to use a LVT for the back of the house, with laminate to match as closely as possible to the floorboards for the study (then cover with rugs).

Oh and I don't want to lay more carpet. Really, really averse to carpet and small children, plus in dining rooms.
