Many parents like to decorate their kids' rooms with a cute theme. This is probably not a good idea unless money is no object, since kids grow quickly and tastes change. If you don't mind spending a lot on a new theme every few years, that's O.K., but most people can't or don't want to spend that kind of money. Better to have a neutral room so where you don't have to throw the old stuff away constantly. Just look around at garage sales some day. You will see entire rooms of so-called "themes" going for ten cents on the dollar.
Decorating kids rooms can be fraught with tension if you don't handle it properly so if you don't have a preference over the best way to handle this, (providing you don't have more than 2 children) it may be an idea to simply flip a coin in the air and have the kids call out what they want. If you have more than 2 kids, another way to handle it is to tackle the whole decorating process of their rooms at once instead of one by one. Having said that, if this feels like simply too much mess for you, agree with the kids which days will be spent decorating each room and what will be achieved on each of those days so that they can see you sticking to a plan and know that each of them is having the same amount of time and money spent on their room.
Don't go overboard with large and expensive changes. I tend use more accessories and paint. Great options are removable wall decals; they come in every size, color and theme. They will give you a great look, using the child's interest with a small price tag. You can blend them with a wall color (their choice) even if just on an accent wall. Another favorite of mine are carpet tiles; they add great color and texture. Using accessories that follow the theme of the room make it is easy to change in the next few years as you child and their interest grow.
