stair intersection design ideas

I currently have some angled stairs going from my garage into the home. To the left of these stairs is a closet that I’m going to take out to allow more open space in the garage. Directly to the right of the angled stairs are the stairs leading to the basement. I’m really not a fan of these angled steps as visitors are not use to them and frequently stumble or miss a step(I’m surprised nobody has fallen down the basement stairs yet…knock on wood).

So after the closet is gone, I would like to put in more normal steps but there is not a lot of space between the door and where the basement steps begin. I would like to know if anyone has an alternative ideas for these steps. I was thinking steps that wrap around, but I’m not sure it would work with the amount of space I have.

For those that might mention local codes, this project is in Albany, NY.

Here is an image of the steps.

Here is a rough sketch with measurements.
