Front Door Feng Shui Made Easy

Looking for a strong front door for your home, to add that extra something that brings energy into your home? In the Chinese practice of Feng Shui, the front/main door is very important in a home or business. Your home's Chi or energy comes through the front door, so a balanced door is stronger and brings nourishing energy to those living within.

4 Front Door Features:

  1. Open Flow of Energy - Remove dead plants, cracked pots and items blocking the door, keeping it clean of debris. Keep the energy moving.
  2. Looking Good - Show that your door is kept well, no squeaks, new hardware, fresh paint. Remove those old Christmas wreaths. Pay attention to it and it will attract that quality to your life.
  3. Color Matches Direction - To gain energy, choose a color that is harmonious with the direction of your door. Remove rusty light fixture or nails.
  4. Crisp Main Entry - Your front door should open to a clear energy flow where the energy throughout the home begins. Clear the pathway and keep the flow going.

AUSPICIOUS ELEMENTS AND COLORS

Use a compass to determine in which direction your front door is facing and use the corresponding direction and it's ruling elements to determine color and decor to best augment and promote good Chi (energy) through your front door into your home.
