Not bad, but to improve, try this:

1. Don't add phantom fill lights in scenes. It looks unrealistic. Use actual light fittings. Alternatively, use invisible 100% transparent LEMs outside windows and behind the camera

2. Don't overdo your post-processing. Image 3 has been ruined by it

3. Render to the HDR format with the HDR presets

4. Use the Roundcorner plugin for your edges. For most edges, a 2mm chamfer with the edges softened is fine. For most edges you won't need more than 2 faces to your rounding. Have a look around you at anything which is rectangular. Whether it's a book, a box or anything, the edges are ever so slightly round. This means that they cast a very fine shadow at the point of contact with the surface they are resting on. You can't round every single edge because it will increase your polygon count, however you can simulate the effect on objects where you won't notice the edge rounding.
5. Use Podium's Nudge plugin to randomise things like chairs. No-one lines up their furniture with a laser level [wink]
6. Where objects rest on other objects and aren't sealed to them, separate them by 1-2mm. This means skirting (base) boards above floors, in fact anything resting on floors or tables or surfaces. This simulates the fine contact shadows that you get by the edge rounding mentioned in 4 above. It makes your lighting much more subtle and naturalistic

7. Angle your pictures on the wall. Usually the top edge is not flat to the wall.
