What to do with awkward bottom step?!

5 months ago

We are currently renovating a 1950s home. We are in the process of removing the stud wall shown in the photo and want to have an open stair case. The red carpet hides an original parquet floor which we will restore. Ideally, I would like to cut the bottom step and reduce the tread but that will leave a patch in the parquet flooring which will be v hard to patch up. Do I leave the large step as is? Im planning to add a carpet runner and am worried the large bottom step will look odd. Any advice or suggestions are v much welcome!!
