thanks for the tips, i will be adding a marble finish to the work tops and i will be toning down the mirror effect, just takes w hile with it being yafaray. Also i will be adding alot in the way of objects, including a cooker and fridge as well as pots and pans and a sink.
The proportional layout looks okay to me, the kitchen wasnt modelled with a reference picture, but i will have a fiddle round and see what looks better. i thought the new camera angle would look better but im not sure. Like i say though i will experiment with it and see what i can come up with. Thanks
