When purchasing a home phone, many people prefer a cordless phone, because it provides a simple way to ensure that you can make and receive calls in any room in your house. The biggest advantage of cordless phones over corded ones is their portability, which means that they can be used in multiple rooms and even taken outside, eliminating the need to keep running to the phone to answer calls.

If you are not happy with your phone's range you can always add a repeater to amplify the signal and increase the range.
