Making my room less childish?

Hi all.
I have a REALLY childish room, and I hate it. I don’t want to paint it, as that’s already happening at some point, but apart from that, any general ideas, like when a kid goes from kid to teen, what did you do? What did, if you have them, your kids do?
I’ve though tidying up, taking down all my posters, minus my metallic spiderman one, buddah one and brown one, putting all my crap under my bed etc. But any other ideas?
I NEED more storage, I have more books and DVD’s then I have shelf space, and it’s rediculous, any ideas?
