So much of a wedding registry focuses on the kitchen. After all, newlyweds have to eat, and wedding gifts are a great way to set yourselves up for evenings of gourmet cooking and entertaining. Often overlooked, however, is the place you spend the most time when you're home: Your bedroom! It should be an escape for rest and relaxation, so we say it's high time brides and grooms started adding bedroom upgrades to their registries—alongside those kitchen appliances and picture frames! Here are seven bedroom basics, upgraded to transform your bedroom into the ultimate retreat.

Your bed is the centerpiece of your bedroom, so why not treat it as such? This bed frame is made of solid mango wood, with geometric accents and a light wash. It's the perfect mix of masculine and feminine styles, with clean lines and a warm finish. Keep your bedding neutral, or add a pop of bright color to play into the Moroccan-inspired design.

This is an air purifier you won't be embarrassed to showcase in your bedroom. With super-sleek, streamlined design, the LG PuriCare ROund Console features Smart Lighting so you can quickly check the air quality with the simple LED lighting system that uses four different colors to show air pollution level. Not only does it clean pollution in the air, the Smart Inverter keeps the noise to a minimum as well. With levels as low as 23dB, it’s just above a whisper.

Sheets to keep you cool means you'll need a blanket or two to keep you warm. Add rich texture to your bedroom with this chunky knit blanket, handmade with pure Merino wool. Fold it at the end of the bed for chilly nights, drape it over your new arm chair, or wrap it around you on those chilly mornings when getting from your bed to the coffee maker seems like too much to handle.

Nothing puts a finishing touch on a space like the right rug. Whether it's softening up a wood floor or adding a layer of texture to wall-to-wall carpet, a rug is one of those details you won't realize was missing until you add one to your bedroom design. The delicate crosshatch pattern of this wool rug adds a subtle pattern—grab a large size to slip under your bed, or a smaller rug to lay right where your feet would go as you wake up in the morning.
