The debate continues to rage as to whether a dollhouse needs a staircase or set of stairs. Keep in mind that staircases can take up a considerable amount of space, but they do add to the overall character of your structure. They come in a variety of choices from simple ladder styles to more elaborate curved staircases. Note that a curved staircase can take up nearly an entire room, so choose wisely. The choice is up to you. If your dollhouse or kit includes stairs but not railings or spindles, you can add to the architectural style of the dolls house.
