IN Feng Shui, the front door of a house is called the mouth of qi, and thus, it is important that home owners choose it in the right colour, shape and size to bring in good energy.
With the right choice, the occupants of the house will be happy and, most importantly, enjoy a comfortable home that is brimming with positive energy.
Feng Shui masters would tell you that the choice of most auspicious colours is based on the direction of the front door and its corresponding Feng Shui element.
If you want to improve the Feng Shui of your front door for more positive vibes in your home, consider the following tips:
The size of the front door should be proportionate to the house. Feng Shui warns that disproportionate door sizes may cause problems with wealth and career. The front door should also be larger than any other doors inside the house to prevent problems with relationships, marriage, and emotional control.
The colour of the front door should be inviting. It should depend on the direction the door faces, the person’s Kua — determined by the birth year, and the location in the house. This is for Feng Shui enhancement and cure.
While there are various types of doors made from a combination of fibreglass, wood or metal, it is wise that you use the right material for your door. The door should make you feel safe and protected.
You can’t help it if your front door faces a certain direction as it comes in the developer’s building plan. But there are ways to remedy the situation such as placing Feng Shui-type plants or crystals near the front door to prevent negative energy.
Most front doors open inwards for easy entry. If your door opens outward, the occupants and visitors may have to take a few steps back before entering the house. While it does not really matter how the door opens, if the opening is inward it just gives more peace of mind that the door is not going to hit you.
PATH TO THE FRONT DOOR
The path to the front door should be smooth and inviting. You can place plants at the side of the door but make sure they are not too big or thorny. To improve the experience as you enter your home, plant flowers alongside the walkway because it will provide a peaceful and comforting feeling.
