A 7-year-old boy deserves a room that fits his strict decorative standards. While a drab but practical room might suit your tastes, your child wants something that bursts with life and imagination. To fulfil this desire, it is best to use a theme that will pervade the whole room. Ask your son's approval before you begin the design.

Many 7-year-old boys are obsessed with a local sports team. If your child's interest is reflected in his clothes and muddy sports-playing shoes, you should also make it show in his room. Paint the room in the colours of your son's team of choice; try to match the carpet as well. Decorate the walls with team jerseys, pennants and posters. Other decorative items can include trophies, souvenirs, baseballs, footballs and hockey pucks. Visit the team's stadium or online store and purchase matching rugs, trashcans and bed sheets to fully round out the room's theme.
The first step in picking a cartoon-themed room is to decide if the room will be dedicated to one cartoon or to cartoons in general. If choosing cartoons in general, include wallpaper, lampshades and fabrics displaying cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny, SpongeBob SquarePants, Scooby Doo and any other animated show or movie character that he enjoys. If choosing one, focus on that one cartoon entirely. Choose toys, towels, bed sheets and posters that correspond with the cartoon. Other items that can round out the room are beanbag chairs and pillows that are in the same colours as the cartoon.
A room modelled after the cowboys of the Wild West can be as much fun for the decorator as it is for the fortunate cowpoke. Choose rustic-style furniture made with as much leather and rawhide as you can find. Hang a rope around the edge of the room or some wood made to look like the fence of a ranch. On the wall, add decorations like a sheriff's badge and hat, a lasso with the child's name painted in it and painted pictures of trees, cacti and hills. Use bandannas for the window treatments and cow print fabric for the pillows. Make sure to include a wanted poster with your child's picture in the room.
It doesn't matter if your child was exposed to dinosaurs first through the Flintstones or Jurassic Park. You can still make a prehistoric pad that any cave child would be happy to call home. Using dinosaur stencils, paint an assortment of prehistoric animals, including a stegosaurus, pterodactyl and Tyrannosaurus Rex, onto the walls. Give the room a certain jungle appeal with plastic palm leaves as window treatments and vines hanging down from the walls or ceiling. Other decorations can include posters from dinosaur-related movies, a plush dinosaur pillow for the bed or dinosaur-shaped furniture.
