Backsplash behind stove


We are presently installing granite counter tops and are trying to decide what to put on the walls. Our granite is a little "busy" so I do not want anything busier on the walls. We have looked into putting stainless steel just behind the stove as we have a Jenn-air stove with a grill on top and there is sometimes a lot of splatter, so I want something that can be easily wiped up. We have looked into the cost for a piece of "quilted" polished steel, the price given is approx $38.00 per sq. ft. Canadian. This piece is only approx. 3ft x 2ft. with some cutting around the bottom of our cupboards. We have a built in micro-wave above our stove and cupboards around that.
Could we put the steel in and then say use glass tiles maybe in a solid colour for the rest of the wall layed in a quilted pattern to match the steel pattern? or just use the glass through out?
Also I've seen where glass tile are installed but the grout line is extremely narrow, the tiles are almost together maybe that would work too, again I just do not want to be cleaning dirt off the grout lines, even if they are sealed. I have ceramic tile on the floor with a light coloured grout and we sealed the grout and I'm still cleaning it all the time.

SS looks great when clean, but keeping it that way can be a bear. Tile is limited only by imagination. It can be decorative, with large or small tiles, plain, etc. Fired tiles are easy to clean and epoxy grout is impervious to most stains.
