If you can buy it for your 'real' house, chances are you can purchase the equivalent item in 1:12th scale and building supplies are no exception! From fence panels, to roofing tiles and even  varnishes and mouldings, you can create any finish and look you like on your dolls' house with the range of products in our Builder's Merchants section.

Yesterday we talked about lighting, and you might want to add some of the exquisite ceiling roses to your plans especially for a period property. For real attention to detail you could chose from the selection of handles, the Art Nouveau ones are some of our favourites.

If you're looking at the bigger picture at the moment in your dolls' house and the details are yet to come, we offer a range of 'real brick' finishes which, combined with the stencils also available, will give you one of the most realistic looking finishes available. For a stunning interior finish, the Tudor Panels and a really dark oak varnish will add that touch of age and authenticity to your period property.

Illuminate your mini-world!

13 October 2014

Lighting can create some magnificent effects, just think of the Blackpool illuminations as an example or 'the strip' in Las Vegas, both testaments to what can be achieved with the humble light bulb! Your mini world doesn't need to be any different, with a wide range of lights (many on offer this month!) there is every option to bring a little brightness to your 1:12th scale creations.

If you are still at the building stage then you have the option to install a full wiring kit to have your lights set on a circuit, using either the hardwired copper system or the more flexible socket strip method, either of which will allow you have lights on in every room.  Of course if you are in the process of redecorating your dolls' house you can also add either of these systems without having tear up the wallpaper. You can pick up a lighting set designed to offer you everything for your chosen house, making things even easier for you. If you are unsure about the lighting. check out the video below, one of our masterclasses!

If you want the utmost in flexibility, what to add occasional lighting or are just not comfortable with the thought of creating a lighting circuit then you are going to be delighted with the battery operated lights, a range that is growing and growing! The battery operated lights can be turned on and off individually, moved to wherever you happen to want them, taken from one house to another, used to light the outside of your house and much more.

For a real 'illuminations' feel, there are even multicoloured lights, designed to wrap around your dolls' house Christmas tree, why not get creative with them?

10 of the Best... Ceiling lights for dolls' houses

11 February 2013

Battery-Powered Chandelier Light
For anyone who missed February's issue of Dolls House & Miniature Scene, you'll have missed an interesting feature on ceiling lights for your dolls' house.
Writer Jane Kubiesa shed some light on the topic by revealing her '10 of the Best'.
Here's what she had to say about our Battery-Powered Chandelier Light, and the popular Modern 'Silver' Triple Ceiling Light.
In at No3 is the battery-powered light, pictured left, which she says are "ingenious" and take some of the hassle out of a project!
At No8 in her list is the Art deco offshoot, described as "a perfect fit" for the look.
Scroll down a little to see her report on that!
If you can lay your hands on a copy there are some wonderful variations on the ceiling light theme, including a grand chandelier, a moon light for a nursery and  some exotic Moroccan-style jewel-laden pendants.
March issue focuses on 10 of the Best... Rugs.
