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.
