Lighting your way to a great look

You know when you are really serious about this hobby when you start looking at lighting. This is the point when you have moved from setting up a miniature house for your kids to expanding this hobby into something more. Lighting your kit can be a fun yet challenging time. At the same time, isn’t the challenge why we are in this hobby?When you break it down, lighting is simply connecting electricity through a wire and a plug. And to add upon that there are great step by step instructions that come with most kits to help you along the way. As will all aspects of this game, things will get easier with time. When you start with your first kit, get a small one just so you don’t overwhelm yourself, something small and easy. Remember whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t you are right.

Size: Very Important in Design

When setting up your dollhouse and buying furniture you will need to remember the three sizing constraints. The first sizing element of miniatures is the scale, the second is the room dimensions, and third is sizing miniatures next to one another. First is the scale of furniture, make sure that your furniture is the right scale for your dollhouse. Meaning, you should check your dollhouse scale, if it is quarter inch you need quarter inch furniture. The second size element, sizing up the room, means that you are not getting furniture that will not fit in the room. Make sure that you measure your furniture room and are aware of the dimensions of the furniture that you buy. The last point is relative size; this means that within a room you can coordinate the pieces. Smaller pieces will get less attention than other pieces, and the larger pieces should be the ones that you want everyone to look at.

Basics of Dollhouse Wallpaper

Once you have painted the interior of an entire kit you will realize the value of covering the walls with wallpaper. It really does save a lot of time to put wallpaper up especially if you have done it before. There are many websites online that will give you some great ideas and options with dollhouse wallpaper. Because you are looking to cover a relatively small area, you should look at getting 1 or 2 square feet at a time. Don’t forget, because you are looking for such a small portion you can even print your own wallpaper design. If you have a computer and a semi decent printer simply make a style that you are comfortable and print out a couple sheets. If you are in to scrap booking you should have all the materials that you need. So go ahead, create unique, personalized wallpaper that matches your design, furniture, and dollhouse kit!

Miniature Decisions: How Many Pieces of Furniture

One of the miniature furniture decisions that you will have to make is answering this question: Can I put too many pieces of doll furniture in one room?The answer depends on the theme or message that you are trying to send, and also on the size of the room. First of all you are not going to want to cram any room with furniture, it is wasteful and distasteful. But secondly if you cram the room with furniture you are missing out on some simple space designing techniques. You must realize that space itself can have its own designing capabilities. The empty space gives your eyes a chance to relax on those miniatures that are in the room. On the other hand if you have too much space then you simply ask: Is that it?As there are many answers to one puzzle this is just another scenario where you need to play around with it until you have a knack for it.
