Deciding a theme is often the most difficult part of decorating a boy's room. Choose a superhero theme to give your child a dash of excitement and a ton of visual appeal. Spider-Man is a Marvel comic book character based on the idea that ordinary teenager Peter Parker gains extraordinary abilities after getting bit by an irradiated spider. Parker, only a high school student at the time, uses his powers to protect those around him. A room built around this honourable character gives every child someone to look up to.

Add a splash of colour to the room by painting the walls in Spider-Man colours. You can choose either red or blue, or use both. If you use both colours, paint three walls one colour and the last wall the remaining colour. You can also paint two walls red and two walls blue.
Pick your linens. Spider-Man bedding is available at many department stores. Using the character on the bedding defines the theme of the room. These sets often offer additional accessories, such as pillows, curtains and wall hangings. Use these, or choose solid colour products that match the decor.
Spell it out. Use stencils or wall stickers to write Spider-Man's motto on the wall, "With great power comes great responsibility." Not only does it go well with the theme, but it gives your little man something to think about.
Add some creepy crawlies. Spider-Man owes his powers to a spider, so you can't leave one out of the room. Hang an artificial spider web from the ceiling or in a corner and add small plastic spiders to the web. If you're brave, you may consider adding an actual pet spider to the room.
Hang a shelf on the wall, or purchase a small bookcase to display Spider-man paraphernalia, such as figurines.
Frame Spider-man comic books, and hang them on the walls. Make colour copies of the originals if you don't want to frame the books.
