Most micro cords come out of rear of unit if made for countertop. They come out the top if it's undercabinet mount. Also cord looks comical in general. Good luck!

Agreed. Also cord could be longer and less perfect (more wiggly).

Looks like you've done a good job so far! I like how the edge catches the light.

The cord looks a little odd I think. It's a bit thick and its length is a bit too perfect for the outlet location. I say make the cord a bit slimmer and longer, and have it curve down a but further.

Another improvement could be the shape of the microwave, in my experience they don't usually have hard edges but are more rounded. But I don't know, I'm sure there are square microwaves around.

Square microwaves are more common outside of the US, especially where space is scarcer.

i think the cord looks too perfect, probably made with a few splines.

my microwave cord looks like pubes all twisty squiggly

No wall is that clean- esp one with a microwave

Um, it's a part of an interior Design scene, should I add grunge? Trying to make a modular kitchen sort of thing

I would suggest:

  • Add a little bit of dirt to the glass, faded so it looks like it’s on the inside

  • Add fingerprints and some wear to the handle, it gets grabbed a lot

  • Fade the display a little, that one is too clear for my eye, it seems unnatural. Most LED displays for microwaves are pretty cheap in my experience

  • Add some fixings for the shelf to the wall, perhaps a little bit of damage too? Something like a bit of paint chipping off near the shelf would really add to the realism

Other than that, I think this is really good!

Show how the shelf is mounted. Now it looks like it’s levitating.

floating shelves are a thing

Plug doesn’t look like a real plug, neither does the marble socket? Chord is too thick, short and rigid, usually the chord comes out the back not the side. microwave is a little bit on the narrow side and it’s rubber stands would be better as black cylinders. The shelve is made of flooring material rather than just wood? The shelve is floating. And there’s a lack of other objects in the scene so I focus only on this

Try adding something to the side of the microwave, maybe like some vents or maybe an indent type thing. And if possible i'd make the edges of the microwave a little smoother.

On a lighter note: put a phone in it. The internet loves that kind of thing.

On a serious note: as others commented, try to add some imperfections/spots on the wall to make it more realistic. Otherwise great job!

Also, some light on the front to project some kind of shadow on the right
