Backsplash behind Stove

I am going to put a backsplash behind my stove area--considering glass. Currently is it painted and there are splatter marks etc. Most of the backsplashes I saw online were tiled so that it was the same width as the hood. I'm wondering if it would look dumb if I put a tiled border the width of the hood and then maybe 2-4 inches wider than the actual stove and then filled in the border with glass mosaic tile.
Need ideas! Thanks!!!

It will look fine. Many times I will treat the area above the stove differently.

That area needs to be scrubbable, so avoid porous tiles, glass is fine. One the best things about tile is design is limited only by imagination(and pocketbook).

I would keep whatever you do in line with the hood. If it's a full splash, it may look less "happy" if all the splashes were the same.

I agree with cabinetman, et al... Sorry for the crappy picture, but here's a shot of my setup. SS backsplash meets up with the edges of the hood, so it definitely overlaps the width of the stove. You can also see where the 4x16 subway tile (not yet grouted, I might add) goes up quite high on the wall and butts up with it. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...f&id=617387176
