Decorating is a personal choice, what is OK for one may be horrible for another. That said.......I don't like the 1" square stuff in your pics, way too busy for me. Not as a stripe, and definitely not by itself.

I heart the look of the glass tiles. But, they've become fairly ubiquitous. I've begun to worry that they be the avocado green of the 2000s? Maybe use them solid as an accent around the sink or stovetop?

The stripe is wrong - it hits your outlets at a weird height - not quite high enough, not quite low enough.

The bottom line is you have to see it everyday and we don't. Try adding the glass tiles in random areas in a design. I like the glass tiles, but I think they're more trendy vs. a timeless look. It depends on what look you're going for. Also try moving your accent border down one row to be in line with your outlets.

I would try different combinations and leave them displayed to see which one
you favor after looking at them all day.

Good luck!

2 cents: I like the 2x2 glasss tile line at the top. Two of them, seems a bit "busy".

.....Not liking the lower line "with" the upper together: Too much going on.

That's just my preference. Doesn't mean I'm right.

I agree, but it is definitely your choice.

Huge improvement!

Thanks for posting the pics.

Funny thing is that there are people that actually like the old "retro look".
