Dolls Houses supplied and decorated to order by Bromley
dolls houses are sold in an un-decorated state ready to be finished
by the new owner, but building, lighting and decorating a dolls
house is a big job and very time consuming. Most people enjoy
this part of the hobby as creating the finished decorated dolls
house yourself can be very satisfying, but if you don't enjoy
this type of work or you just don't have the time you can always
pay someone else to do it for you or buy a dolls house that has
already been finished and decoarated.

decorated dolls houses vary greatly in quality and price and there
are many different types of decoration and finish to choose from
so it's a good idea to do as much research as possible before
making a decision.
cheapest option is probably a painted finish and many dolls house
makers and dealers will be able to offer this option. The more
authentic finishes can take a lot more time, skill and attention
to detail and quality varies greatly from one maker to another
as does the cost so it's best shop around before making a decision.
To see a large choice of good quality finished houses it's probably
best to visit the larger dolls house fairs where many of the top
makers exhibit their work.
