trends suggest that many adults are adopting the hobby of collecting
and decorating doll houses. The reason is very simple; decorating doll
houses gives tremendous satisfaction to adults as well as younger children.
One supplier of doll house decorating materials points out that there
is a hidden desire in every adult to build a house of their design.
But this desire is not practically possible for all, so they feel elated
when an opportunity comes to decorate a doll house.
who have the hobby of collecting and decorating doll houses use all
of their artistic imagination for the design and decorations that they
use. For them this is an inexpensive way to decorate the house they've
always wanted. It is no wonder that some of these hobbyists take years
to complete their decorating, sometimes never finishing.
hobbyists mostly work on one room at a time, and by the time they reach
to the last room they come up with a new idea for the first room. They
will scrap the decoration of the first room and start all over again.
For some it is a never ending process.
hobby of decorating doll houses is very time consuming and challenging.
The bigger the doll house, the bigger the challenge. Patience is one
quality that all decorators have in common. It is hardly surprising
as they would probably go crazy without it. They have to work out the
detailed plan before starting the decoration for the living room, bedroom,
kitchen, bathroom and even attic or spare room.
creating the detailed plan, the hobbyist starts designing the rooms
with wallpaper, carpet, window curtains etc. They also decorate their
doll house with other innumerable accessories like miniature light bulbs,
furniture and many more.
doll house decorators want to replicate their doll house exactly like
their home, or how they wish their home would be. Some even try to experiment
first in their doll house before applying the same design to their house.
Today, the hobby of decorating doll houses becomes increasingly more
specialized. Most doll houses have landscape, patios, gardens etc. Some
have even built a mini theater in their doll house.
There is a very big market for miniature decoration materials for doll
houses. There are special companies that deal with only miniature, custom
made furniture. Most miniature furniture is a working model; that is,
you can open the drawer of miniature wardrobe. Generally the cost of
custom made miniature furniture is high, since they pay full attention
to the minute details.
The most difficult part of designing and installing a doll house is
the lighting system. If the hobbyist has no previous knowledge of electricity
and wiring than it is very difficult to do the wiring and lighting of
the doll house without expert help. As long as the hobbyist doesn’t
have any specific plans for advanced lighting systems, it is possible
to buy small kits that are fairly generic in their appearance.
a doll house and stocking it with collectibles is a long and time-consuming
process, and requires great attention to detail. It is a hobby that
will cause quick frustration in most people. But, if you think you have
it in you to pursue the hobby, you may find that it is very fun and
