How to make your dolls’ house floor look real.

July 24th, 2008

There are so many options to enhance or change the overall look of your dolls’ house floors. Dolls’ house flooring can be created with rugs, carpets, tiled floors, or real wood flooring. Whatever you choose, it will certainly add charm to your dolls’ house.

Here’s what to do;

  • Always use carpets which are in scale with the thickness of your dolls’ house.
  • Experiment with upholstery fabrics or velvet, they can be attatched to the floor with glue or double sided tape.
  • If you are using real wood flooring sheets, do not try to remove the paper backing.
  • If you want a real wood finish, varnish or stain the floor with two or three coats of semi – gloss varnish.

Our expert tips;

  • Do not use real carpet samples, as they are not to scale.
  • Be sure to double check your measurements, and cut carefully so your flooring is a perfect fit.
  • Make sure the surfaces are clean and free of dust.
  • Apply glue to both the floor surface and the piece of flooring.
  • Wipe excess wood¬†glue away with a damp cloth. Always be extra careful when working with super glue, as it cannot be wiped away so easily.

These are just a few of the hints and tips we have received from collectors, we would love to hear how you make your dolls’ house into a home.
