1. If you had done the dishes, the kitchen would look a little cleaner.
⇒you didn’t do the dishes(past), so the kitchen doesn’t look clean(present).

2. If you had done the dished, the kitchen would have been looked a little cleaner.
<In my opinion, sentence 2 is “If you had done the dishes, the kitchen would have looked a little cleaner.� in this context. >
⇒You didn’t do the dishes(past), so the kitchen was not looked clean(past).

Do you understand?

I answer in my knowledge. If I’m wrong, Pleas tell me.
