Furnishings and interior

I was thinking of expandind the description of the interior of Snape's home with details from the Half-Blood Prince movie. Would this be okay to add to the main article or be better suited for a Behind the scenes section?Professor Ambrius (talk) 08:04, February 24, 2013 (UTC)

Films are still canon if they don't contradict the novels, so if you want to then it would certainly be much appreciated. If I had the sixth film I'd help, but I'd be relying on pictures and I find they don't really capture things properly; if you want, though, I could try... --Don't forget: Elvendork!

Well the film shows several none magic iteams, like the clock on the fireplace mantle, a typewriter and electric lamps. The book states that all there was for a source of light was the hanging oil lamp and dosen't even mention having a fire place. Also the there is a window that looks out to be back and an entry way to the kitchean. The sitting room is descried as being wall to wall book shelves. Perhapse a new section that descrieds the difference between the novel and movie description of the house  would be work better. What do you think? Professor Ambrius (talk) 21:38, February 24, 2013 (UTC)
Well, his father was a muggle so it only makes sense there'd be non-magic items. As for the fire-place, just because it wasn't mentioned doesn't mean it wasn't there; same with the window :). All the same, if you want to do a comparison between book-house and film-house, I certainly won't stop you. Don't forget: Elvendork! (It's unisex!) 21:43, February 24, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the insight. I'll do a draft of a comperasion between the two and go from there. Professor Ambrius (talk) 21:52, February 24, 2013 (UTC)
Because his father was a muggle, there would be no magical items kept around the house unless hidden. But once Snape's parents died, he could leave the Daily Prophet anywhere! Bellatrix Lestrange did consider the house as a " Muggle Home" , but Snape only came home in the summer holidays anyway.101.115.134.230 10:56, March 19, 2013 (UTC)

New House page?

I was wondering what your opinions would be if I decied to just go ahead and create a page for the Snape Family home itself rather than adding details from the home's apperance from the Half-Blood Prince film as I had pervisouly inquiored about. I still intened to add those details but as I started to get my facts in order I began to wonder why Snape's house dosen't have its own page. What do you think?
