There are DECT extenders that can help in some cases.
snom has some decent gear that doesn't run to the cost/complexity of the enterprise DECT a la Spectralink.

 The challenge with DECT is that "range" is relative to a single base station/AP versus roaming between base stations/APs.  I'm no expert on DECT, but what I've seen is that most of them don't roam between bases.  The ones that do cost more, such as the Polycom/Spectralink stuff.  I like and use some basic Panasonic DECT stuff, but last time I checked it could not roam between bases (they said they might in the future).  
Every Wifi phone I've tried will roam just fine between APs assuming the APs are properly configured.  Some people are idiots and put the APs on different SSIDs, which kills roaming.

I take it that DECT headsets or handsets are out of question?
 They would certainly have better range and quality than WiFi.
