Good Questions: Backsplash for Sidewall?

Good Questions: Backsplash for Sidewall?

We just purchased our first condo in brooklyn and have not moved in yet. I'd like to know what's the best solution to this problem. As you can see there's tile on the back of the stove and counter top but unfortunately the developer didn't take into consideration the sidewall next to the stove. I know that as soon as we start cooking that wall it's going to get greasy and hard to keep white. I was thinking about getting a piece of stainless steel and just glue it in place, but before I do that I'd like to know from the experts what they recommend...

I was also wondering about glass tiles instead but not sure on what color or texture to use. Also we'd like to know how much tile should we install and how far up from the cabinet or should it be just to the height of the microwave and as far forward as the stove? Please help us before we make a mistake. thanks
