Gnome widgets: Do they work well in non-Gnome environments?


Gnome newbie developer here. I am using Glade to write my application, and I notice that there are 3 main categories for widgets: GTK, GTK+ and Gnome. My goal is for my application to run smoothly under any environment, including non-gnome environments like KDE for instance.

Should I limit myself to GTK and GTK+ widgets only? For most people using KDE, do applications using Gnome widgets run well? Can I use Gnome widgets safely without the risk of locking my application out of many desktops? I assume that the answer is yes, but I would like a confirmation and some warning of some pitfalls, if there are any.
