We would like to put kitchen in a separate category, as it may be treated in so many ways when photography is talked about. Capturing kitchen images for the catalog is not supposed to be an objective task, a personalized rather. People who invest in the kitchen photography will not choose textures by pictures shown in any other ad. They will read about your product on your site or other media and they will usually make their decision after they doing a far-reaching research and understanding the actual requirements.
In this situation, making the concerned brand unique is more important via capturing vivid moods with the photographs than creating a boring 3D rendered kitchen in an unnatural angle. Your buyers may associate themselves with a small detail in the photograph or light from the window or the beautiful image of having tea in this kitchen. So catalog aims to create an emotional connection with the customers, and later motivates them to make the final decision.
