Generally speaking, the worst place you can possibly put your wireless router in a multi-story home is in the basement. You can probably forgo two routers simply by relocating the main unit up to the second floor, centrally within your home.

While it's possible to extend a wireless network with two routers, it does add quite a bit of complexity to the network and is not ideal - especially when you have other devices that emit radio frequency sitting in between the two wireless devices (things like microwaves and cordless phones can easily disrupt the signal or reduce transfer speeds).

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
