Adding electricity is an easy method to add drama and realism to your miniature interior.

Walls can be painted or they can be papered. Many people use wrapping paper or another craft papers to cover dollhouse walls. To get a more realistic look, some may purchase specially made dollhouse wallpaper. Flooring can be another good way to set your dollhouse apart. Hardwood and carpet come in a rainbow of colors.
