Buy a router that offers 5GHz. Most modern equipment can receive the 5GHz channel which are less congested than the 2.4GHz channels. 2.4GHz shares your cordless phones; garage door openers and microwave ovens.
Also 2.4GHz channels only have 3 non over-lapping channels (1 ,6 & 11). The 5GHz channels have 123 non over-lapping channels.
RE: 6 using range extenders are not ideal as they half your connection speed. A mesh type network is best or use extra AP (Access Points) to extend your network. However this means running multiple LAN cables from your primary router to these APs.
