Ordering the right scale
So you have a dollshouse and you want to buy some furniture or accessories for it but you don't know what scale it is. Below is a short guide to how scales work and a couple of tips to determine the scale of your house.
1/12th scale - Also known as 1" scale in the US. The most common scale. Easiest to work out:
1/16th scale - Not easily available in new houses or furniture. Popular a few decades ago.
1/24th scale - Also known as halfscale or 1/2" scale in US as it is half of the size of 1/12th scale.
1/48th scale - Known as quarter scale or 1/4" scale in US as it is a quarter of the size of 1/12th scale.
Cut out some rough figure shapes in the sizes given above, stand them in your house to see which suits the size best.
