We used Ronseal floor paint. It's incredibly tough, we had to move several bits of furniture both up and down the (painted) stairs, I was sure they would end up scuffed or chipped, but no, not a mark!
It comes in a range of colours, we went for cream, (safe colour, some might say boring!) With a richly coloured runner on the landing, and a large rug in the same design in the home office.
The actual floor surface on the landing and in the office was that sort of green chipboard stuff (house built in 2005) we used a quick coat of something from the Zinsser range (as recommended by our odd job/decorator chap, can check which one) then 2 costs of the floor paint.
Very happy with how it looks, will be doing the same in the 2 remaining bedrooms.
You can find rugs in so many different styles, and reasonably priced (the runner was under £30, the large rug was about £40) so as far as I'm concerned, painted floors plus rugs is not only low maintenance, but you can change your decor without the expense and hassle of new carpets!
