We are buying a new (to us) home and have some flooring to replace before we move in. I have allergies, so I can't have carpeting. My question is, what kind of wood flooring do you have/like? I want easy maintenance, as in I'll sweep or vacuum, and mop, but I don't want to be on my hands and knees waxing every week. What about stairs, do you have a carpeted runner? (We have a 3 yr old who has never lived with stairs before)

i have solid wood floors.i have had the laminate before and i would not suggest them. if you scratch the laminate then they're ruined. with the solid wood at least you can refinish them if they get damaged. we have the ones that are sealed and come ready to put together from the factory. you don't wax them..... they have a polyurethane finish on top and you just sweep them up and maybe a damp mop now and then. i don't have a runner on the stairs. i always thought it was such a pain to have carpet on the stairs..... very hard to clean!
