Wifi Extention R7000 and R8000

I have a R8000 as the primary router.  This is wired to the internet from my provider and set downstairs.  I would still like to get better extention in the house upstairs.  Should I set up the R7000 as an access point or bridge mode?  I could actually plug the R7000 into the internet also if that makes a difference.

Model: R7000|Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band WiFi Router,R8000|Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Smart WIFI Router

Use Ap Mode .....it requires a data cable between both and extends WIFI coverage ..best method

 

Use bridge to connect a wired device ......no cable required except from bridge to wired device
