Hopefully you'll at least feel happier that you have started on your decorating project and your kids will certainly be happier for having their rooms redone, and then there's also the sheer fun you'll have had whilst working with them. This last is of course a little tongue in cheek because decorating kids rooms generally isn't hassle or stress free. On the contrary there's a strong possibility that you'll have had a boatload more stress by the time you've finished, but at least you'll have had the satisfaction of getting closer to your kids and seeing their rooms clean for at least one day before they get back into their normal routine.
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.
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.
