WIP Water Heater

Hi all.
This is my first post here, trying to find my way around.

I have done graphics for games for many years, but now I want to explore VIZ modeling and rendering a little more.

I found this water heater in my kitchen and used it as inspiration, for this rendered image.

I still want to do some work on the image:
*More, environment: tabletop, background kitchen area.
*Refine metal material.
*Lighting and environment reflection.

Any comments?

I rearranged the camera and lights a little.
Also added some kitchen tabletops and walls.

I still want to tweak size of the wood textures and add some more detail to the back wall.

Looks great so far. Is the metal material supposed to be something like brushed stainless steel? If so the reflection might need to be toned down a little and also more blurred. Also, the bump on the wall to the left of the image looks a little strong.

Thanks for the feedback csalexan.
It is noted.
I have added a little extra detail and change the composition a little.

I still want to add a little more detail to the back table, and then maybe do the final polish of materials and lighting.

Here is the latest render.

Next i might add some steam from cups and water heater.
