A lot of places in western/northern Canada is totally no shoes inside. It feels really strange walking around a commercial establishment in socks.

The setup looks generally pretty good.  It would be easy to put removable carpet pads on the steps and leave the metal showing on the risers.  It will look a little warmer too.  You could do the same thing with wood, but carpet on the entry steps gives people's shoes a chance to drop some dirty before they hit the interior.
You don't have to believe everything you think.
