White cabinets look gray

Recommended Posts

I _believe_ that I've set the properties correctly for the cabinets, which are white with white doors/drawers. However, they look quite gray. Since I'm trying to assess color combinations, the lack of "real white" creates challenges. I've tried to apply material eyedropper/painter without success. However, what appears to be the side of the cabinet on the right is white, but that may be due to how Home Designer Architectural 2018 applies lighting to the rendering. Any thoughts?

 

thanks!

Probably a lighting issue. What do they look like in a Dollhouse view?

 

Post the plan file and someone will have a look.

I added several default light sources in front of the cabinets.

The software uses a single default light source, and in your plan, it's placed in the hall putting the cabinets in shadow.

 

If you place a room divider so the hall is a separate room, the lighting will by default be in the room with your camera.

 

Also suggest adjusting this setting.

Forgot to add these images.

 

You must add your own lights.

And try turning on these 2 settings. They may be in a different location in Architectural.
