I'm Laura Anne and I have been a dolls house collector
for over 20 years. There is nothing that I can't tell you about
You have probably found me by searching online for
information on dolls house kits. Unlike other web sites I am not
going to shove a load of dolls house kits in your face and say
"buy me" that's not my job. What I want to do is give
you a little more information about dolls house kits and tell
you how you can create a beautiful dolls house that will be admired
by your friends and family and last a lifetime.
Creating a really beautiful doll house is all about
the detail. Every dolls house starts with basic wooden rooms,
it is how you dress the rooms that will really bring the house
to life. The living room above is a basic square shape, it is
the dressing that gives it it's character and makes it look so
If you are looking for your first doll house you
may be a little overwhelmed by decorating it yourself. There really
is no need to be, creating a dolls house room like the room above
is very simple. This room uses a fairly plain doll house wallpaper
on the walls which you just stick in place with glue. The furniture
is very basic and can be purchased from any doll house shop. What
really brings this room together is how each piece colour coordinates
and how the accessories give it that finishing touch. Lots of
accessories have been used to make the room look like someone
really lives there. This is something that is very simple for
you to do and is also lots of fun. It gives you an excuse to purchase
an accessory in every dolls house shop you visit.
The same technique can be used for the outside of
a doll house. The majority of doll houses come as kits that you
paint or paper yourself. You can paint a house a very basic colour
and bring it to life with outside accessories like window boxes,
trailing flowers, birds, a weather vane and outside spaces like
balcony's and patios. It really is the little extra details that
make a dolls house. Just Take a look

The Key to a beautiful doll house is to accessorise,
all the rooms featured here are just standard square rooms but
they look fantastic because they are accessorised....
That said there are a few more things that a doll
house needs to make it truly perfect. Number one is high ceilings.
All of the rooms featured in the pictures here have high ceilings
over 9" tall. This gives you enough room to hang curtains
properly and for the pictures and lights to look in proportion.
The next thing is quality. A good quality dolls
house will last a life time and you will be able to pass it down
to your children, a poor quality dolls house might not last you
Many dolls house kits are
now being shipped over from China. They look good and are reasonably
priced but the quality is very poor and I would be surprised if
they last a year. A good doll house kit is made from a sturdy
wood which is usually at least 6mm thick, has a strong construction
that doesn't show any screws and every piece fits perfectly.
Durability: A good
dolls house is also very durable so it will last for years to
Ease of Building: Nobody
wants a to purchase a doll house kit and find they can't put it
together. If you have never put a doll house together before look
for one that is easy build, where the pieces simply slot into
place and there are no screws so you won't see any unsightly screw
heads. The majority of good quality kits are easy to build anyway.
Ease of Decorating:
Doll Houses made from MDF are easy to paint and decorate as this
wood provides a perfectly smooth surface for painting and decorating.
Both paint and glue stick to the wood very well and are not absorbed
so you won't need a lot of coats of paint. When painting you will
need a primer and then your top coat and when papering you can
use normal household wallpaper paste to stick the paper to the
Ease of Lighting: Lighting
a doll house isn't difficult if the house is front opening, made
from a good quality wood (like MDF) and has space for a socket
board. All good quality dolls houses will allow for lighting.
Dolls House I personally Recommend that has all of these features
is The Beeches.:
My favorite part about this house is the room sizes. They are large
and any of the rooms on this page could be created in this doll
