1 Inch Scale
1 inch scale is the standard scale that doll houses
are made in. It is also known as twelfth scale.
The majority of doll houses, kits and furniture
are made to this scale. There is also ½ inch scale and fashion
doll scale but houses and furniture in these scales are much less
If you are thinking of purchasing a doll house
for the first time it is best to stick to 1 inch houses because
you will find it hard to find furnishings in the other scales.
The exception to this is if you want a doll house for Barbie size
dolls, for these dolls you will need a fashion sized doll house.
Dolls that fit in 1 inch houses are around six
inches in height. Room heights range from 7 ½ inches to 12 inches
in large country mansions so the dolls fit in nicely.
Most doll house artisans that create furniture and
accessories for doll houses work to this scale. This scale is
not so small that the parts are too fiddly to create. You can
get a lot of hand made items in this scale and nearly everything
you have in your own home you can have in your doll house.
If you want to create your own miniatures one of
the easiest ways to scale items correctly is to purchase a 6 inch
doll. You can then compare the size of your creation to the doll
to see if it is the right size.
