Stair tiling question...

I was wondering if someone could give me some advice for my stairs. I see now that I should have started with the stairs so that the tiles would line up with the kitchen but I didn't so now I'm running in circles trying to figure out how to make the stairs look proper.

As you can see if I keep the stair tiles aligned with the floor tiles I'll have just over an inch or so gap to fill on the left side and the end result won't look "even". Would this look bad??? My question is should I just carry on and do it like this or do I have some other options that I'm not seeing? I could shift the stair tiles over about 6" so then I could have them butt againt the stair ends. That would give me more grout lines but I'm wondering if it would look stupid if they didn't align with the floor???

Any ideas that you could send my way would really be appreciated!
