Add light source on floor of Kitchen make them spotsand change material attributes of the stainless... one of the Raytraces looks decent. Try computing caustics on the next one. Do you do post production work in Adobe Photoshop if your not ,you might want to think about it. Going to print I find its a must.

You need to have "Photon Mapping" turned "ON" to get those predefined metals to show properly. Also, under "Image Properties" the brightness was set to high and the contrast and intensity needed to be adjusted. Here is my Raytrace after making these changes, did not have all of your textures so some items are off.

Turned off outside environment light. Ambient occlusion 0.1 - 10.0. Direct sunlight intensity 10.0. Photon mapping on/no caustics. Didn't change your materials settings.

David - The Ambient Occlusion functions a bit like a shadow/highlight adjuster and should help in creating a crisper look. You may also find that when using this the ceiling will also brighten up. This may allow you to reduce the emissivity of your ceiling material which will also help in making things a bit more crisp. The Caustics really only effects how light refracts when passing through a transparent object such as the island pendants, the effect in your plan would be minimal so turning this off is not likely going to be detrimental. One thing I noticed is that there appears to be a pinkish cast showing up on the sink and stove front, suspect this is coming from the polished floor, you may need to adjust the floors polished material settings or try some of the other metals to see if this effect can be eliminated.

Hi Dennis..you are right...too reflective..the actual floor has a low sheen...if its too reflective you loose what is going on as in my rendering...

Cheers.
