Wavy glass tile as backsplash - electrical outlet plate over or under

We really liked this back splash - Saint martin wavy glass mosaic

My handyman expressed couple of concerns -

It is not supposed to be grouted. Tile shop designer said if we install vertically, then with good sealant it should work OK. Also, we have another flat stainless steel tile around the sink and Stove, and the above glass tile rest of the area.

Electrical outlets plates will protrude more out due the shape. It was asked before http://ths.gardenweb.com/discussions/2602464/outlet-covers-for-glass-tile

but mine is mosaic tile. Another houzz photo here -(link: [https://www.houzz.com/photos/wavy-glass-mosaic-backsplash-transitional-kitchen-indianapolis-phvw-vp~21387613(https://www.houzz.com/photos/wavy-glass-mosaic-backsplash-transitional-kitchen-indianapolis-phvw-vp~21387613)

I have couple of GFCI outlets, 7 normal outlets and two more with a switch. I can replace them all if I need to...

Any suggestions?
