Has anyone lived in a multi-level house and opted not to put of stair gates?

I can't even imagine living w/o our gates. They make it *SO* much easier to just let the boys play and not be worried about them climbing up and falling down them all the time, yk? I'd just feel like I had to keep both eyes on them 24/7, and I'm not into that. I'd rather be able to sit and relax sometimes, yk? And w/o them... I just couldn't.
The way our stairs are it would pretty much be impossible to install a gate as they angle out from the wall and have posts on both sides. What I did for those months where I was most concerned was to put chairs in front of the steps...that at least slowed them down and alerted me to what was going on by the noise of them moving the chairs.
