Theme a room after Batman, the dark brooding superhero who actually has no super powers but is human like the rest of the people he protects. Batman jumped on the scene in a 1939 comic and continues to warm the hearts of his many fans with his fight against evil in Gotham City. The debonair Bruce Wayne, Batman's alter ego, walks the city by day as Batman patrols it at night.

Walls

A graphic treatment covers the wall and ceiling as you paint the walls to resemble pages of a comic book with a white paint outlining black squares. Batman's action words, such as "pow,' or "bam" combine with images of gadgets from Batman's utility belt in the squares. The bat signal, a yellow oblong with bat wings inside, covers one square while a Batmobile decal fills another. Or follow the traditional design of painting Gotham City on the walls with glow-in-the-dark stars, a crescent moon and a bat signal.

Furniture

A twin headboard receives a Batman makeover by wrapping batting then Batman material around the headboard and stapling the material in the back where it won't be seen. Computer-generated Batman and Robin photographs create a découpage design on the top of the writing desk or the closet doors. Glow-in-the-dark stars line the edges of bookshelves while themed decals cover the drawers of a dresser. A bat pole fills the corner of the room or attaches to a set of bunkbeds, allowing the child to slide down the pole.

Bedding

A bright, bold colourful bed comforter design features pages and characters from the Batman comic book. Bright yellow sheets, reminiscent of the bat signal, adorn the bed with a couple of matching pillow shams. A black bat symbol covers the front of the pillowcase, and throw pillows made from Batman print fabric carry the theme forward. Patterned Batman fabric hangs as curtains tied back with strips of plastic resembling the utility belt Batman is never without.

Accessories

Framed photographs of Batman, fighting the Joker, Catwoman or Penguin, group together on the wall while framed pictures of Batman's lair and the Batmobile sit on top of the dressers and shelves. A Batman flag hangs from the ceiling next to a collection of Batman action figures. A small plastic toy Batmobile, placed in an acrylic display case, sits next to the collection, along with a collection of comic books. Batman stickers cover lampshades, and a Batman light switch cover turns out the light.
