How to Decorate a room with a Batman theme


Batman was created in the 1930s and remains popular today, thanks to comic books, television shows and movies like "The Dark Knight." There are even Batman-themed roller coasters at Six Flags parks. If you want to bring some Bat-fandom into your daily life, you can decorate your room with a Batman theme.

  • Decide which Batman you want to celebrate. The 1960s Batman was rendered in a brightly colored and campy style, while the Tim Burton movies of a few years ago encompass a darker, creepier vision. You can also mix the best of both worlds and have a complete Batman experience.

  • Paint the walls in an appropriate color, like a gray or dark blue. Paint bat shapes directly on the wall to represent the Batcave, or skyscrapers to symbolize Gotham City. .

  • Find an illustration of the Batman symbol and try to replicate it on one of the walls. The most used Batman symbol is the black-and-yellow emblem the character wore between the 1960s and 1990s. Place it in an easily seen spot in the room, almost as a centerpiece.

  • Purchase and hang framed posters from the various Batman movies. Some of the best ones are images of the Joker from Tim Burton’s "Batman" and this year's "The Dark Knight." But if you are looking for solo images of Batman, check out posters from "Batman Begins" and "Batman Returns" (many of the latter will also feature the Catwoman and the Penguin).

  • Collect and display Batman memorabilia, including DVDs, action figures, statues and apparel. You can also find costumes and replica weapons that were used in Batman movies by looking in stores and online.

Bat Signal

  • Create a Bat Signal like the one used to summon almost every incarnation of Batman.

  • Get a flashlight and measure the width of its face.

  • Cut a small bat shape out of thick paper or cardboard. Make it just 1cm less than the width of the face of the flashlight.

  • Tape the bat to the face of the flashlight, making sure it is centered.

  • Turn off all of the lights, point the light at the ceiling and turn on the flashlight. A bat shadow should emerge. You have now created a Bat signal for your Batman-themed room.
