Is an L-Shaped Home Feng Shui Bad Luck?

  
  
  

feng shui l shape house resized 600In Feng Shui, an L-shaped home is considered unlucky, inauspicious or unfortunate. L-shaped homes imply that something is “missing” or unbalanced, especially if the L represents a “missing” section rather than an extension. If the L-shaped extension is exactly 50% of the total length of the home, this too, can create imbalance.

An L-shaped home with a bedroom, kitchen or dining room in the extended area can cause marital discord and a lack of family unity. Other rooms in this area can cause a loss of concentration, failures at work, and financial difficulties.

There are ways to correct the imbalance caused by an L-shaped building, though.

1. Use living chi, in the form of a tree within the missing area of the L.
2. Point a spotlight up in the missing area
3. Place a fountain or statue in that area to “connect” it visually to the rest of the home.

With these remedies, an L-Shaped home doesn't have to mean bad Feng Shui luck, but this structure is best avoided if possible.

My 1st floor appartment is L-shaped with the common stairwell in the missing area which correlates to the mental/spiritual section of the bagua. what can I do to minimise the effects of this? 
Thanks! x

My apartment is a corner unit utilizing north and west of the building. Front door is approx. in Helpful People and Career areas. The kitchen forms the "L" on west side in Self-Knowledge which means the main hallway for all apartments and emergency exit stairwell are in the "empty" space of Helpful People and Career. I had read once that this could be seen as extra i.e. enhanced Self-Knowledge rather than less of other areas. 
Thank you.

LauraL, 
The l shape in a floor plan is separate from a person's initials. If you want to review your first name or full name, then I recommend you review the numerology grader tool available in the top navigation.

Yes, I enjoy doing numerology but all numbers are frequently used, making it seem pointless to just associate one alone to one's destiny..My Bau Qua is #6 I am a Western Group person.For as much as that is worth.

What about an L shaped bedroom in 
the romance gua. The short leg of the L is the closet?

Renee, a square or rectangle is best for the bedroom. An L shaped bedroom is not the most ideal. However, with that said, focus on what you can change and don't focus on what you cannot.

I have a L shaped home, but the extended area is the garage, will I consider that part of my house? and the missing part of the L shaped is my drive way, will I consider it as part of my home? hoping for your response. Thank you!

Eli, 
 
You consider just the home for the floor plan and not the garage. Of course, you can place the ba gua over the entire lot to review as well but to keep things simple, you may first want to just start with the home.
