Doll House Scale

Doll House Scale
The first thing you need to know and one of the most important is that dolls houses are built to standard doll house scale. That is they are built to a certain size so furniture and decorations can universally be fitted into them. There are two standard scales for dolls houses: 1/12th scale and 1/24th scale. 1/12th scale is 12 times smaller that real size and 1/24th scale is 24 times smaller than real size. 1/12th scale is by far the most popular doll house scale and most furnishings and dolls houses are made to this scale. 1/24th scale is becoming more popular but there are far fewer furnishings available for this size doll house. To see some 1/12th scale doll houses click doll house scale

If you have seen doll houses displayed in shops or on the Internet they are most likely in 1/12th scale but you do need to check. When starting out I would suggest you opt for 1/12th scale unless you are specifically looking to collect 1/24th scale.

Another thing you should know is that some dolls houses are designed specifically for children and some for adults. There are big differences between the two and a dolls house made for a child will not suit an adult collector. This guide will take you through everything you need to know about collectors dolls houses. If you are looking for information on children's dolls houses Click Here for our children's guide.
