Registry Upgrades That'll Turn Your Bedroom Into the Ultimate Master Suite
Whether you've lived together for years or are cohabitating for the first time post-nuptials, you and your new husband or wife deserve a luxurious retreat.
Is there anything better than coming home to a luxurious, spa-like master suite after a long day at work? Your bedroom should be an oasis, but if you're feeling bored by less-than-exciting linens, an old, lumpy mattress from your fiancé's bachelor days, or towels that have lost their soft, plush feel due to a few too many trips through the wash, it's time to think about upgrading. Luckily, your wedding registry affords you the perfect opportunity to do just that.
While there's nothing wrong with creating a gift list packed with the standard must-haves—fine china, new luggage, and every kitchen appliance you could ever need—we think spending some time curating a selection of items for the ultimate bedroom (and bathroom, if you're lucky enough to have an en suite) is a worthwhile endeavor. Sure, a high-end espresso maker is something you've always wanted, but a cozy down comforter and a pillows are things you'll use and see every single day. And the more comfortable and elevated you make you bedroom, the better you'll sleep each night. Who doesn't want to be more well-rested in the months leading up to the wedding?
To help you get started, we're highlighting the essentials necessary for the most luxurious master retreat. From the comfiest, most supportive mattress and hotel-quality bedding and spa-like robes, add these gifts to your registry and you'll have the most enticing bedroom on the block. Worried that getting out of bed each morning would be a whole lot harder with these items in your space? Don't worry, we have a suggestion for that, too.
