Should I rip off all tile floor of foyer and kitchen?

I am working on my kitchen remodeling. We have a 200 sf kitchen area including a powder room. The entry of kitchen is a foyer that is around 100 sf. There is no door between them. Now the floor is all tile (13x13). Since we are going to tear down a partial wall and other arrangement, there are few tiles need to be removed and replaced. I only have 4 pieces left from previous owner and the tile is discontinued. Consider the new kitchen we have to replace them. My question is that should I rip them all including foyer area? The tiles are OK and I just feel bad to chop them off. And it will cost me 30% more for the flooring. Some said it is better to keep foyer and kitchen floor the same material since it is a small housr (1700 sf cape). Should I keep them different tile? Rip them off and do it all in once or I would live with it and maybe sometime in the future I can have foyer replaced with hardwood floor (kitchen is tile)?

Thanks,

-J

It's your call....They make 100 different flavors of ice cream for a reason...if it would just be tile, I would make it the same....but the hardwood could make it special...Small areas sometimes look more elegant if the same flooring flows through..so keep that in mind..

I would probably rip it up.
