Looking great dude, like the lighting a lot, has a very nice daylight feel to it, the only thing I dont like is the exessive lens distortion

i agree lighting looks good, the cupboard doors dont appeal to me though. they look off colour, to soft and sort of cartoony.

just personal preference, the extractor fan i think would look better stainless.

Light setup is great. Couple of things:

The woodtexture allmost looks like a procedural, but better than the standard one. Also the wood texture seems copied AND the scale is way too big on the wood behind the panels.

Double D:
Dirty it up.

It's really smooth but it doesn't seem ppl live there. Add more details, small color lights on the dishwasher, more details on the oven, more stuff like spoons, a piece of wood with some crumbs on there... a sponge/towel... Go to your own kitchen: take a pic, compare with your render and notice all the junk/kitchen equipment...

A timer device,
bottle of soap to wash your hands. etc etc.

Also a thing I noticed: The drawyers underneath the sink: one shouldn't be there, it would go trough the sink. The other can't be opened.

And where's the dustbin...? :D
Also behind the eh...*forgot the name* where you cook stuff... there's wall. Add a metal plate because when you cook meat, and the fat/oil/butter flies in small drops trough the air against the wall: try to clean THAT. Yellow spots 4 life on your wall.

Anyway looks really good I'm really giving tips to perfectionize it...!

I agree with all th comments, really nice lighting etc.

The problem with the drawers under the sink is only handles i think. At my house we have a 'fake' drawer under the actual sink bowl with a handle to keep things symetrical. Just a thought!

Max 9 you say? What lights have you used here?

Cabindoors: delete the uvw maps. Select all the doors. Apply one uvw map to them all.

This way the uvw map will be the same scale for all but on a different place.

About the fake drawer: yeah we got a fake one too. Some have it others dont. At least make the one next to the fake one openable. Perhaps actually put it to open and show some forks and knife's and stuff... :)

Just nit picking, and I do like what you have so far but, the cooker looks massivly wide. It has two sets of rings and four knobs but none for the oven. Just a thought.


If everyone around you is panicking and you are calm, perhaps you haven't fully grasped the situation
