Not really sure I'd qualify this as chillstep myself, it sounds a bit too basic trancy to me. Some drumvariations might help.
And maybe you could throw an Alligator on those synthpads and play with tripletgating a bit. It's also missing a tasty bass underneath it all in my opinion.

Maybe check this guy out for some chillstep inspiration

Other than that, dare to be more playful with everything, it's just too static in its current state.

I think this has the makings of a great track. It's quite elegant and stately! I agree it could do with some drum fills and some mixing up in the arrangement but it's got a great groove to it and the reesey style bass sounds great. good work.
