Thanks Andy.... That means a lot and what we hope for with hard work...

Goes to show that the RedSDK Render Engine is capable and can compete with other professional engines out there if we feed it the correct setting...

No post processing outside TC!... Raw renders and no further tweaking required....  :) Nearly all others, like the top end VRay, the users often have to mess in photoshop, RedSDK not necessary...

Yep, that is narrow. Love the wood on the breakfast bar and the 'quartz' worktop. I want to grab an apple.  ;D

Kudos on the attention to detail.  There is very little in this image that doesn't look like a photograph.  You even made the outdoors look over-exposed (common when taking indoor photographs).

Many Thanks Jeff and appreciated, Yes, the windows, Tone Mapping works the same as a camera's.

Here is another view from the other end of the kitchen which shows a closeup of the Tap (Faucet). The curving the spring was a learning curve... pardon the pun...

Another view.... The customers Central Heating boiler is in a horrid position and that's why the wall unit to the left hand side of the hob/extractor is deeper...

Hi Darrel
I like the first picture the most. It has some mysterious atmosphere. It seems that the artistic impression is more important here than the presentation of the design of the kitchen space.

Not sure what you are meaning about the "Artistic impression being more important than the presentation of the design of the kitchen space" though? please explain..

I have pulled the camera view angle a bit but the positioning is close to how I would photograph it in reality...

My point is that I look with pleasure at this image, just like at painting, to hang on the wall. I do not think at the moment about a professional, functional kitchen design, that looks very good.

Daz  :) Love the design and layout.

Just two things >  ;D
> cabinets are flat?
Something doesn't seem natural with the lighting, its like the room has a night lite feel yet the outside looks like a balmy sunny summer day, if that makes any sense.
it's all really cool though, and nice too see you posting your renders.it always motivates me  :)

What do you mean the cabinets are flat?? Yes they are an eggshell sheen?
The lighting would be like this having interior lights on which often photographers need to switch on in reality... The sun is not full strengh and the lighting is similar to this photo:

Superb: I admit |'m only a raw novice at TC, so I certainly wouldn't quibble about light-levels etc.

Rather, If I were to wanting a new kitchen of similar standard I'd now know whom to ask!

Speaking from the householder's perspective, if as I assume this is based on accurate drawings of the real kitchen to discuss the proposals, it's a huge step on from the usual brochure photos of possibly the chosen appliances and fittings but in architecturally very different settings. If I were the customer I would consequently have considerably more confidence in your ability to give me the kitchen I want, in both standard and style.

Incidentally, there is something of a precursor to this approach in the 19C, in producing specially-tinted drawings of major engineering projects like bridges, I think similarly used in the contract negotiations, albeit with railway companies and harbour boards rather than private home-owners.

Many Thanks Nigel...

Yes, it is based on a customers kitchen which I took measurements for and asking what they require and trying to get everything to fit in these tight constraints.

Brochures and samples are a good start to get an idea of what they like in both style and colour and I make suggestions. A suggestion I made after both of them had different opinions on finish (she wanted painted and he prefers natural timber) was to create a two tone design framing the painted door/drawer frontals with natural oak. This especially after her concerns about when mopping/hoovering the floor, and the potential more obvious marking of the painted plinths.
It is also more appealing to me having contrasting finishes rather than one colour.

Having good visuals to show the customers is the main selling point to hopefully get a sale.

Lightworks.... to equal the quality will be very hard as it has not got as good lighting solutions and the GI is not as good.
The big problem for me is having no direct live tone mapping tools in the AR styles. So we have to keep re-rendering... :P

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your comment.... much appreciated.

I have updated the design as the customer had second thoughts about keeping their free standing dishwasher..., I also sorted out the wood worktop to have proper end grain on the edges...
