Getting the feng shui of your main door is critical as it represents the “mouth” of your home. As I mentioned in my prior post on main doors, this is where bad and good chi enters and flows. Here are 5 more feng shui tips for your main door (Part II).
Ideally, your main door should be composed of solid materials such as wood. Make sure to repair it if it’s chipped or worn out.
Keep From the Clear
Glass doors may cause the good chi from your home to disappear due to a lack of protection. It is best to stick with a door made entirely with solid material.
Bigger is Sometimes Better
Your main door should signify security and strength, so make sure it’s big and strong. However, note if the main door is in your unlucky direction, you may consider keeping it smaller and less imposing and utilizing an alternative entry way.
Keep it Bright
To invite good chi, make sure that the area leading to the main door is well lit. Add lighting, skylights, chandeliers, and windows nearby to boost chi.
Watch Your Step
Depending on your birth element and the bagua location of the stairs, there are varying afflictions that will build up if the stairs flow out to your main door.
Place a small mirror at the back of the main door to redirect the negative rushing energy from the stairs. Alternatively, place a screen, curtain, or furniture to redirect the flow of energy.
