back splash options, want opinions please

We are DIY'ers. My husband installed a vanity over the weekend. He accidentally broke the granite backsplash and we can't find another one. So I decided to use glass tile. The sides of the walls are badly damaged so I have no choice but to cover them as well. I think that the backsplash is too low so we are going to add three more rows of glass tiles. What I am trying to decide is if I should add trim to it or leave it. I have three trim options. Fixtures are rubbed bronze. The bathroom is beachy which is why I chose the sea glass looking tile. see link for photos

RE: back splash options, want opinions please

Your link for more pictures does not work for me. I do like the glass backsplash tiles you are considering. I also like the small dark square tiles you show at the bottom. They relate well to the dark speckles in your granite and would look good with rubbed bronze fixtures. If you are going to trim the glass tiles I think you should use those dark square tiles on both the top and bottom of the glass tiles instead of the lighter squares in the picture above.

RE: back splash options, want opinions please

In the picture with the light colored squares at the top and the dark squares at the bottom, I'm kind of liking the lighter color. But the color would have to be perfect. Your link doesn't work. I don't see a picture in your post on my iPad, only a tiny square that I can click on to see a close up of your tile. This happens on my iPad. I don't know why.
