Feng shui door color

You may already know that the art of Feng Shui says that front doors are very important, because it is through the front door (which is also called the mouth of Chi) – that the house receives its energy.

The quality of this energy that comes through your door determines the energy in your home.

In today’s post we are looking at color energy based on the direction of the front door. Take a look below to determine which color energy would work best with your front door. Do you have this color already?

It is also important to know that Feng Shui also offers other alternatives, so if you cannot re-paint your front door, there are other ways to use feng shui to create a strong entrance way. The easiest way to create a strong feng shui front door is to find the appropriate feng shui design for it – be it in colours, shapes or materials. This is done by nourishing the feng shui element that corresponds to the direction your front door is facing.

An East facing door is a door with the compass reading from 67.5 to 112.5 (here’s how to take the compass reading of your front door).

Green is the feng shui color of renewal, fresh energy and new beginnings.
