8” to 10”, you have a one inch scale dollhouse (1:12 or 1/12)
4” to 5”, you have half inch scale dollhouse (1:24 or 1/24)
2” to 2 ½”, you have quarter inch scale dollhouse(1:48 or 1/48)
less than 2”, you have a micro inch scale dollhouse (1:144 or 1/144)
If you are still unsure, chances are you have a one inch scale dollhouse. This is the most common and popular scale for dollhouses. You can read more about dollhouse scale here.

What type of wallpaper should I get? What is the difference between unpasted versus peel & stick wallpaper?
Both are made from the same professional weight paper. It is thick enough to cover wire tape and old wallpaper, yet thin enough to bend around corners.
Unpasted wallpaper does not have adhesive or glue. You will need to apply wallpaper paste to adhere it to your walls. We recommend Yes! Paste, which you can purchase here. The advantage of unpasted wallpaper is that it is more forgiving, since the paste takes time to cure, you have a little bit of wiggle room to reposition the paper after you stick it to the wall.
Peel and Stick wallpaper already has an adhesive applied to the back. Think of it as a giant sticker. You cut it to size, peel the backing and stick it to your wall. The advantage is it is convenient: no paste needed, no curing time, and less mess since you are not applying your own glue to it. However, since the peel and stick wallpaper bonds immediately and permanently on contact, you will not be able to adjust it after it is on the wall.

What is the thickness of the paper?
Both unpasted and peel & stick wallpaper are professional weight paper, similar in thickness to index card stock. Our wallpapers are engineered to be thick enough to cover wire tape and old wallpaper, yet thin enough to bend around corners.
Is the paper matte or shiny?
The paper is neither matte or shiny. It has a smooth satin texture. If you prefer a matte or shiny look, you can use Matte or Gloss Krylon spray sealant.
