Feng Shui and The Color of Your Front Door
Maybe you've never given it a thought, but the color of your front door is very important in Feng Shui. Indeed, a home's front door is considered the "mouth of chi" where energy enters the home, and, as such is given much attention and consideration to ensure the occupants enjoy good health, happy relationships, and prosperity.
Color Choice Matters
A front door that is painted red is not only striking and vibrant, it is traditionally considered the most fortunate color for the front door. Red symbolizes good luck and financial abundance, so if you want to invite those qualities into your living space, (and who wouldn't?), you may want to think about painting your front door red.
Green is another popular color choice for front doors in Feng Shui because it is the color of money, and it also symbolizes health.
A purple front door is not very common, but, if you want to call spiritual energy into your home, it is an excellent choice.
The direction that your front door faces is also an important consideration in Feng Shui. Use a compass, (download the app for your iPhone here), to determine which direction your front door is facing when you are standing inside looking out. Once you know the direction, you can choose the best Feng Shui colors for your front door.
