Nice. For a room with white walls and reflective flooring, your ambient light seems too low. There is no detail in the shadowed area of the dinette set. :)

Lighting can be a challenge, but if done right your image will be much improved.
It looks like you have both area light shadows on? I would turn off shadows in one of the lights and focus on one light as your key light. Try playing around with point lights as "fill lights" in areas that need to be brighter. Try also creating a 3 point lighting setup. Heres a link http://www.newtek.com/products/lightwave/tutorials/animation/3point-light/ Just experiment with lighting, the power and electricity in LightWave is free !! It will make or break an image.

I would also suggest reading a book called LightWave 3D Lighting..heres a link http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1556220944/102-0359978-1835349?v=glance

the radiosity works, but it doesn't help your atmosphere! Turn off the radiosity and start with simple lights. then, when you have an interesting image, you can turn it on again.

You also have to take a serious look at your surfaces since they don't compliment eachother.

Make it a bit more chaotic, rotate some chairs and change the perspective.

It still needs a lot of work

have fun! :)
