I want to paint my 8 year old room, and he really likes Bakugan but I'm afraid that if I spend a lot of money into decoration his room with Bakugan in a year he wont like it any more. Any suggestions for a little boys room?

If you find a really cool fabric your son loves, try using it like wallpaper. Wet the fabric down really well with liquid starch and it will stick to the wall like a sticker...and come off flawlessly when you pull on it.

Maybe paint the wall a single colour and then use the removable stickers or posters, then he can change it when he wants to.

Hmm. I did a space room for my boys. It's pretty interchangeable for little boys.. ex toys story Buzz Lightyear and aliens theme, then star wars, now the solar system.. :) i like the wall stickers that look like they are painted on. it's cheap, looks good and is easy to switch out.

I have 2 girls sharing a room that have different tastes. One likes pink and white stripes, the other likes purple and lime green. One likes Princess one likes Minnie Mouse So on and so forth. We negoiated.The room is still unpainted until we can agree on a style. If they can't agree, I'm painting it my way. lol
I'm going to try the fabric idea! I love it! Maybe we could have different themed walls... like a little museum :)

Paint it a good color that he likes and put up posters. Then change the posters when he changes his interests.

Yep, paint a good background color that goes with the Bakugan that he likes... and buy the bedspread and posters for decor. Definiatly best way to go as yes yes kids change their minds so quickly :) I agree with the other mommies

My SK's like a very pale green in their room like a sage green color, I found some really cute drapes to put in their room as well. along with some paintings that bring out that room. They didnt tend to mind. I put up some different posters that they would like that actually matched the walls, alll in all I put up a bulletin board so they can pin up posters or anything they want. Thats their own way to decorate (poster board only)

My DS6 wanted a Pirate theme in his bedroom last year. We painted, wallpapered a border, bought bedding, decorations, etc to fit the theme and 2 months later he wanted a Sports room!! We now plan to move our younger son into his room as he would love those decorations, and my son will go into a room with plain walls with some of his favourite teams posters up, and his teams comforter.
So my advice - keep it simple and easy to update!

I wouldn't spend alot of money doing the Bakugan room. He will want a definate change in a few years. I would paint his room a bright color and get the sheets, comforter, pillow cases, and curtains with Bakugan on it. Then when he is ready, (and you will be ready) all you'll have to do is throw everything out and repaint. That's what I would do and what I have actually done.

Maybe Paint a good reuseable background (like deep blue or rolling hills). With a themed bedspread, curtains, lamp and some reusable stickers all you have to do is thrown down a matching themed rug and it's lovely. The good thing is then when your child gets to 12 and changes his likes and dislikes (if you make it to then!) it's sooooo much easier to change his room!

It's about 9x9 and has one large window next to the closet. and average height ceilings. Right now we haven't done anything but put Stickers on the walls.
