Whether I’m building my own or considering purchasing miniature furniture and appliances, I have one big problem — how do I tell if it’s in scale if I don’t know the “real life” size of the object?

So I’ve started doing some research on various household furniture and appliances to find standard sizes (these are U.S. standards). The chart below is the result of that research — it’s an ongoing project, I’ll add to it as I move from room-to-room of the house I’m currently building.

Numbers are rounded off to inches and are a general average of the sizes I have found.
