Really change up this space by using two different sized tiles. Install square glass on the majority of the splash then run a border of matching subway tile throughout. Or try putting the subway tile on the splash but squares behind the stove. How about setting the glass tiles on an angle so that the squares look like diamonds instead. Do this on the entire splash or just behind the stove.
