Opinions about a backsplash, please?

Putting in a kitchen backsplash and want your opinion. Doing a stainless steel backsplash behind stainless steel oven/range and white subway tile the rest of the kitchen. Grout is a grey which will work for the SS tile and also for the white subway tile. However, the white subway is 3x6" and the SS tile is sold as 1x2" but isn't really quite 1x2. Our handyguy says it will look bad to have the groutlines not even with each other due to height difference of tiles (SS vs white) but the guy at the upscale tilestore says not an issue. We aren't sure if it will or not.

is a picture (third pic down) of something very similar, except their grout is not grey (and white tile looks like a glass in the picture, we are using tried and true classic white subway). The horizontal grout lines don't line up and it seems fine in the picture, but then again, they aren't using grey grout for the white tiles. We want to stick with the grey grout for the white subway tile, bc of cleaning and also in keeping it old school style. Opinions?
