1/4 Inch Dollhouse Furniture

Dollhouse Scales: Quarter Inch

Dollhouse manufacturers use scales to help you make sure you are buying the right sized items for your dollhouse. The most popular scale for both furniture and dollhouses is the 1 inch scale. 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 ¼ inches long is built to represent a 5 foot real tub. If you do not know the scale of furniture you need for your dollhouse, use a ruler to determine the floor-to-ceiling height on the bottom floor of your dollhouse. If it is between 8-12 inches, it is most likely a 1 inch scale.

Heights between 4-6 inches use a half inch scale; heights between 2-3 inches are on a quarter inch scale.
