Suppose you really want to make a difference in the overall feng shui layout across your home, business establishment, or career dwellings. In that case, the front door design and color should be the first thing in your home improvement list.

Think of your whole establishment as a living organism with each interior and exterior section as its body parts. If you are already versed with the basics of Feng Shui, you would know that the front door is also known as the mouth of “qi” or “chi.” This is because the entrance is the main space where the house or office takes in the feng shui nourishment from the exterior surroundings of your establishment.

Base on Bagua layout

    You can either buy the whole front door according to your Bagua layout, with the appropriate colors, designs, shapes, and materials. If you already have a front door, you could change the color of the door according to the direction it’s facing and let the “Chi” flow in.

Choosing Feng Shui Colors for your Doors

    We all know that for each feng shui direction, there is a corresponding element in the form of colors, designs, patterns, shapes, etc. Choosing the right color is an important component to strengthen the feng shui energy and absorb large amounts of positive “chi” for your home or office.

Bagua: 8 Areas

    8 impactful directions are specific to the front door corresponding to 8 different guidelines that face each of these directions. Check your front door opening direction using a magnetic compass or a compass app on your phone.

These are the corresponding degrees and colors to each direction:

    Note: Always use the secondary colors only if the primary element colors do not match with the exteriors of your house or office. It is best advised to use the primary colors if you have the option to do so.
