Basement stairs/door

I tried posting this in the Codes thread, and was hoping to get additional opinions here.

Currently our basement stairs are accessed from a door exiting the kitchen, then step down to a small landing. At the landing (probably 4'x4') the basement stairs go down to the right and striaght ahead a door exits to the porch. We want to remove the door at the kitchen, which means we would need to add one at the basement stairs. Due to the small landing and possible interference with the porch door, we are thinking about putting the door at the base of the stairs and finishing the basement stairs and landing. Does anyone see any problem with this setup? Code violations, etc.? Thank you in advance.

you should be fine as long as no door opens toward a stairway. for example if you come to the top of the stairway form the basement the door has to open away from you not towards you.
