You should start planning your dollhouse lighting even before
you build your house. Step one when you get your dolls house
should be to start planning your dollhouse lighting. We will
guide you through the whole process of dollhouse lighting
some of which you will do before your dolls house is built
and some after it is built and decorated.
While doing the dollhouse lighting
first of all check the location of all the lights in your
dolls house. Will they be on the ceiling, walls, free standing
and table lights? You don't need to buy all the lights instantly
at this point but you need to decide on the quantity you will
be using and where they will be situated. The quantity of
lights you use determines what transformer and socket board
you use for your doll house lighting.
After lighting it is the turn of fixing the transformer
and wiring of your dollhouse. To determine what transformer
you need count up the number of bulbs that will be used in
your dolls house lighting. Remember that this is the number
of bulbs and not the number of lights, so a three armed tulip
light will count as three bulbs.
Next count how many lights you will be using to determine
how many plug sockets you need. The average socket board has
twelve plug sockets so you may need to use more than one.
You can run more than one socket board off a single transformer.
Something you may want to consider if you are using a lot
of lights is to use two separate doll house lighting circuits,
one for each side of your dolls house. You can then use a
lower watt transformer and fewer socket boards on each circuit
lowering the probability of a fault occurring. Also if a fault
does occur it will be much easier to pinpoint.
Concentrate on one room or area of your dolls house. It is
important to light, or plan where your lights are going to
go before you decorate so you can cover wires. If you start
with one room you can light it and decorate it then move onto
the next spreading the cost of doll house lighting and still
enjoying the dolls house.
Start with the bottom floor rooms that
are the best way to start decoration of your dollhouse according
to the Dollhouse lighting.
