I would say to improve lighting, remove all the shaders for a flat off-white look first. From a design perspective, the colors are horrific here. The textures you're using look pretty sweet so far, such as the floor and countertop, and the fridge ain't bad either - but the walls and ceiling beams/structure aren't helping with adjusting the lighting. Perhaps you chose this paint scheme in real life? Even so, the color scheme will make this scene look cartoonish no matter what you do, and also the walls don't look like painted drywall yet. The need bump and some shininess and texturing, as well as rounded corners.

Are we looking at a Formica countertop, with wood trim edges? It would appear your wood trim edge shader has some glow to it, but I don't know Vray well enough to help you with that.

I agree with pap87 about adding "scuffs and dings" to the shinny surfaces. Your new render looks better but I think adding some non reflective areas to the floor and the marble might help with making it look realistic. The floor could use some bump as well because right now it looks like flat image on a plane. There is also a big contrast between the ceiling and the colorful walls. Maybe try making the ceiling brighter and adding imperfections to the top edges of the walls instead of it being so straight. Also if you look at the walls in your home they do have some sort of bump and they aren't super slick. good luck!

I used some bump on the floor but i guess it's too small i'll try to fix that. About that reflection on the marble, actually i like them but good point i think that in some places coulb be more reflective and in some places less, but i'm not sure if i can do that, what would be the best way to do that ? i'll try to change them but if anyone knows good way to do that please tell me.

Thanks to all of you guys,those advice really helped me out.
