Need help choosing glass for kitchen cabinets

At the end of my kitchen design. Need to choose glass for cabinets in several areas. I don't want a big distortion of the objects behind the glass. Some cabinets will be lighted with glass shelves and other areas will be unlit with wood shelves.
Does anyone have experience with choosing glass? The shelves in this photo will be glass with lights.

I did 4 doors in glass and about to do 3 more once we buy the extra cabinets.
Here is a local company to me that has their standard glass online to view. http://www.doylestownglass.com/dgc_lr_glass_samples.html
Seedy doesn't seem too distorted
Restoration glass is really nice, but quite expensive.
I went with Nouveau glass that has a swirl

I still have to buy all wood shelves to paint, so keep in mind it's not finished :) and of course lighting the inside.
here is a side view before I painted the inside and I took the photo so the design showed up more. You can see in the first picture, it's not as noticeable.

I would go with clear and if you don't like it that can easily be changed later.

your kitchen is beautiful. I like how you reversed the colors of the cabinet vs the counter tops on the island and lowers. I'm going with the cup pulls on my drawers too. They seem so much more classier and have more of a furniture look that I like.
