Backsplash design question

Hi,
our new kitchen is almost done - just countertop and backsplash left.
We have a question re: backsplash design - where to stop on the side walls? Is it going to look too bad to carry it all the way to the corner on the right including down to the floor? Would it look like an "accent wall" maybe?
I would like to have tile all the way around the sink and cooktop to prevent splashes.
The tile is glass - I attached few pictures of that wall and a tile sample.
Any other suggestions welcome
Thanks

I've seen what you're referring to in bringing it further out and down to the floor, I don't personally care for that look. Tile generally stops at the front edge of the countertop.

This glass tile is relatively thick ~ 1/4 inch. How will its edge look in the middle of the wall?

1/4" is the thickness of the average tile, so your glass isn't going to be much different. I'm not sure what you mean by "in the middle of the wall".

I mean - the edge of the glass where it stops on the front edge of countertop. There is going to be a small step down...

Anyway - I got feedbeck from other sources and decided to go bold - with an "accent wall" - I will post the pictures when it's done.
Hopefully will look nice.
