Glass tile transition to tub surround for undermounterd tub

Dear Experts,

We are putting a Kohler Greek tub in our new master bathroom instead of just a shower as in the building plan.This is to provide a soaking tub as well as a standing shower.As the tub is shorter than a standard whirlpool we are going to undermount it with a solid surface for the deck. In magazines you see many whirlpool installations with a marble or granite surface and backsplash but in those there is no shower.We want to undermount the tub so water will not back up on the deck. Does the joint where the glass wall tile meets the deck need a special glass molding? I would prefer none just glass tile to solid surface.

The wood frame around the tub is white with traditional molding and we plan to put a glass or porcelein outer edge on the deck surface to prevent water from gong on the floor.

The wall tile is tumbled aqua beach glass and I hope to find clear glass hand rails that could be grouted in to the wall. All thoughts and suggestions appreciated.
