There are several options for this, but proper configuration is really the most important. Just adding an extender won't do any good if you don't spend the time to configure it with the correct channels and other settings on each device, in fact it can make it worse.

What I'd recommend to simplify things, to give you both better quality hardware and ease of setup is a purpose made system that is designed to be integrated together from the beginning, which minimizes the work that you have to do, you just plug them in. Here is one such system I'd suggest: http://amzn.to/2pjVvnD which comes with a router as well as an extender and you can add additional mesh extender units if needed to cover a broader area.
