Furniture and architecture elements are common subjects in many miniature genres. This week we’ll learn about how to use common sizes to create cohesiveness in a scale model, and consider how these rules change when working on a playset. Measurements of real objects are great source material for modeling, but if you’re working off of photographs, or designing something from scratch, it’s helpful to know typical measurements of a variety of common objects.
Width and depth vary, but the height of common furniture pieces is fairly constant. Online catalogs are a great source for photos that are accompanied by dimensions.
Building code and human proportions have changed over the centuries. Common architectural dimensions like door width and railing height are typically wider and higher in modern buildings than in older architecture.
