If a single flat is not designed properly, it will make the room look darker and narrower. Therefore, while combining your own preferences, you can generally choose lighter shades and intermediate colours for furniture and bedspreads, sofas and curtains. These colours, because of their diffusion and receding nature, can extend the space and make it look bigger, so that the living room can give a fresh and cheerful, bright and spacious feeling. When there are many relatively different shades arranged throughout the space, the visual effect of the room will be greatly enhanced. However, care should be taken not to use too many different materials and colours in the same space, with soft, bright colours dominating the palette. It is advisable to use the same shade of wall paint or wallpaper for the kitchen, bedroom and hall, which can make the space appear neat and clean. A bachelor flat can also be enlarged with light, for example by increasing the size of windows or using furniture and tables and chairs that are permeable or made of glass to make the space bright and spacious.
