Dollhouse Scales: Quarter Inch
When you buy a furniture item, you want to make sure it will fit correctly in your dollhouse. Dollhouse scales help you know you are getting the right size. If the scale is half inch or quarter inch, it will say so in the title; all other items are on a one inch scale.
Dollhouse scales show how many inches of dollhouse furniture correspond to a foot, or 12 inches, of real life furniture. For example, a dollhouse tub 1 inches long is built to represent a 5 foot real tub. A good way to determine which scale to use for your dollhouse is to measure the floor-to-ceiling height of your dollhouse.
Heights between 4-6 inches indicate a half inch scale; heights between 2-3 inches indicate a quarter inch scale.
