Dollhouses come in all shapes, sizes, and designs. It primarily depends on the owner’s choice what kind of dollhouse you’d like to keep in your home. With dollhouses being extremely popular with both children and collectors, it is not surprising that there is such a large variety available.
Dollhouses were invented way back in the seventeenth century and since then have evolved in many ways and into many cultures. People today have the choice to either buy a dollhouse or create one from scratch. If you are not an expert carpenter or jus don’t have the time, buying one is a better option but it will also be quite a dent on the pocket, especially if you opt for a large dollhouse. On the other hand, making a dollhouse from scratch needs quite a lot of planning. Making a dollhouse whether large or small is like building an entire home with one less wall. Although the outer walls are fewer, the facets are just about the same and you also need to have the creativity to furnish it.
When you build, it is better to build a larger dollhouse so you get more work room and can spend some quality time decorating it. This of course is negated if you don’t have enough room to keep the dollhouse built. If you intend to use the large dollhouse as a collector’s showcase you can adorn your living room with it and attract every visitor’s attention. Also, if you have more than one girl child at home, a large dollhouse can make enough play room for them.
A large dollhouse will ideally be more than three feet in height. This dimension would qualify it as a somewhat large dollhouse. Of course, the rest is completely to your imagination and you can build dollhouses of any dimension. In fact, some creative furniture sellers actually market bookcases that are shaped like dollhouses and are as tall as 6 feet. Most pre-manufactured large dollhouses are not more than 4 feet high and cost about $200-300.
