Why is 방은 넓어요 incorrect?

My best guess is that in this case it is a specific statement. When statements are specific 이/가 are more often used, whereas general statements use 은/는.

If the sentence was "Rooms are wide", 은/는 would have been appropriate.

I am struggling with this as well on Duolingo, since the lack of context makes it hard
