7 Tips on How to Create a Balanced Front Door in Feng Shui

Feng shui is the widespread practice of placing pieces in living areas to establish balance with the natural world. This is significant in the home since it is said to draw positive chi, making your life feel more vibrant. Since your front door is the inviting entrance to your home, incorporating feng shui into it is highly advantageous to your residence and the people who live in it. This post will offer the best feng shui strategies for creating a stable front door.

#1 Brighten up the space. 

One of the top things to consider when arranging your front door in feng shui is the lighting. According to feng shui principles, light is a powerful yang force that represents the vitality of life and brings fortune to the dwelling. It is further believed that orange and red hues illumination will help you bring in success. You can do this by installing these colour lamps or other fixtures. 

Another way to lighten up the space is to add more glass or windows around the front door. This will reflect sunlight, but it will also bring natural light into the area. However, if you are not a fan of orange and yellow hues, you can also choose to brighten up the space by sticking with elegant white paint. You can also change the bulb to a higher wattage dimmable bulb or surround the front door with as many additional light fixtures as possible.

#2 Keep it neat. 

Of course, you will also need to keep a neat area to apply the feng shui principles. It is believed that a clean house results in more energy and a more powerful life force. You can avoid clutter around the area and only keep the essentials or things you need. 

It would be best if you also extended the cleanliness of your front door to the foyer or entryway. Ensure that you keep the shoes, clothes, and even mail organised. Overall, this will help you attract more potent energy and avoid the stress of dealing with mess when entering the home. 

#3 Practice proper maintenance. 

A poorly kept door can drain you of all positive energy when you enter the house. This is why proper care and maintenance are critical components of feng shui. Your front door deserves the same level of attention to cleanliness as the rest of your home. The goal is to feel encouraged, tranquil, and alive as you enter or leave your home.

Make sure that the door doesn't feel rusty or rigged, and always check that there are no possibilities of it becoming jammed. If you notice a squeaky noise, you better get it fixed so it doesn't make your house feel haunted. 

#4 Display enticing art.

A well-designed feng shui front door promotes positive changes and presents beautiful chances. It permits energy to flow easily into and through the interiors of homes, bringing about healthy transformations and attracting prosperity and good fortune. 

You can place a pair of foo dogs on either side of the entryway for added security. Allow these lion dogs to patrol the perimeter of your home. These do not have to be enormous like those found in an ancient Chinese palace. It is sufficient to place small ones discreetly among your shrubs, in a container, or in other hidden spots near your entrance. 

#5 Place fortune plants. 

In feng shui, we use a variety of strategies to rebalance the qi in a home. We bring in specific sorts of energy by intentionally introducing certain materials, such as plants. Numerous plants also help filter out contaminants and improve indoor air quality. 

Additionally, they are a lovely way to incorporate more nature into your house, which is especially beneficial as we spend increasing time indoors and on our electronics. Plants also represent the wood element in the feng shui five-element system. It is recommended to incorporate plants into a location to increase the number of wood element traits such as energy, growth, and healing.

#6 Choose the suitable front door material, colour, and size. 

The majority of doors are constructed of metal, wood, or fibreglass. Metal and wood contribute to the balance of the five elements, allowing you to make the most of feng shui. Moreover, the material of your front door is more important than the material of other doors in the house. While you can choose one of them according to your preference, securing your front door with metal will increase your home's defence. 

If you are looking for a savvy and modern material, go for our special french doors in St Albans. They are perfect to place on either the front or back of a property and may create a very stunning entry. 

Moreover, if the colour of the feng shui front door does not immediately grab your attention or claim your head, it should be replaced. The primary reason for choosing the door's colour is to enhance the feng shui effects and appeal to your guests. Apart from your own preference, prioritise your comfort when feng shui painting your entrance door.

#7 Find the proper front door placement. 

The direction your front door faces is decided by your Kua number using the Eight Mansions formula. To summarise, each person has four lucky and unlucky directions, and your front entrance should face one of your lucky directions.

If the position it is located in is not the most promising in your home, you can work with the five elements to make your door more feng shui friendly. If it does not, you must work around the five elements to align them.



Really does look the bee’s knees

The fitters were very polite, thorough and clean during the installation. Very pleased with the purchase. Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for the new door and to let you know how pleased we are with it. Kaye was delighted when she got home and saw the finished job, it really does look the bee’s knees and has transformed the appearance of the entrance. Its been a real pleasure dealing with you both and rest assured we’ll unreservedly recommend your company whenever we get the opportunity. The only problem I have now is that Kaye has started muttering about replacing patio doors and french windows at the back of the house. So unless I can rein her in pretty damn quick you may well be hearing from us again.Thanks again chaps for a great job at the right price and with the minimum of fuss and disruption.

100% recommend Paul and Harry a great father and son team! I'm so pleased that we used them to supply and fit our new front door. Straightforward to deal with from start to finish and communication throughout was excellent. They are extremely knowledgeable and were able to offer advice and suggestions when we were choosing the door we wanted. Nothing was rushed during the installation with great attention to detail. They took away our old door and frame and left everything clean and tidy at the end of the job. Thank you, Harry, for taking the time to go through everything with us at the end of the job, much appreciated. I would not hesitate in using Paul and Harry again. Thank you both so much, we are so pleased!

Had a door fitted by these very friendly chaps about 18 months ago. We're very happy with it. When an issue arose with the mechanism, they came out and fixed it in about 5 minutes and it's as it if is brand new again. Very pleased, would highly recommend.

Highly recommend. We had our front door fitted by this lovely team. They were friendly, helpful, willing to listen to me debate options and provided helpful advice for choosing the right door for us. When he had a slight issue (no fault of their own) they came out to us the very next day and sorted it. Such a good supplier to work with!

Brilliant service. No hidden costs or fees and no heavy sales tactics. Very open and clear from the start, and they worked really hard to fit a great new door in our thinner than average doorway! Great value and great result. Will be recommending to all.

Highly recommend Rock Solid doors. We have used this friendly family company several times and have recommended them to others who have been equally impressed with the high standard of work and the product. We have received quick service and found them to be very reliable knowledgeable with no hard sell. The installations have been carried out professionally and they go the extra mile to ensure you are happy with everything. The external doors are robust and we are impressed with the quality of the product.

Faultless customer service from a fantastic company to do business with. From start to finish it’s been a pleasure buying composite doors from Rock Solid Doors – in fact, we were so impressed with the front door and installation service they provided (we opted for a Solidor Ludlow 2 with 2 x fully glazed side lights) that we got them back to supply our utility door (Windsor Solidor – fully glazed) shortly afterwards. Paul dealt with our initial queries promptly, came to measure on site and provided a competitive quote very efficiently. These guys are first-rate craftsmen and know their stuff: evidenced by working around a couple of quirky construction issues without any problem – leaving us really impressed with the end product. It’s great to come across a local business that takes pride in what they do, going the extra mile for customer satisfaction – we cannot recommend Rock Solid Doors highly enough! Thank you Paul and Harry!

Brilliant service from Paul at Rock Solid; our letter box seal had gone causing a slight leak - he responded immediately, attended this week and fixed with a new gasket. Would highly recommend the product and the service.

I ordered my Vogue Rock door with the Ocean glass from Rock Solid Doors at the end of 2021. I had a number of criteria when searching for my new entrance door. It’s ability to insulate had to be A rated. I also wanted it to have a good quality locking mechanism that is smooth in action. My new door needed to be modern with a pane that lets plenty of light in and thus goes lower than the half line on the door, while leaving sufficient height for the letter box, so it is sufficiently high to be comfortably reached by our postman. The Vogue Rock door provided all that and more. I love sailing and the Ocean glass design evokes the lines of a sail in a beautifully minimalistic fashion. It also makes the door look unique, which is always a bonus. During my search for the perfect door I had lots of technical questions too. Only Paul and his colleague from Rock Solid Doors were able to answer all my questions and provide a door that offered what I was looking for. They supplied and fitted my new door in early 2022. My heating bill has gone down noticeably, as a result. With the golden oak wood grain on the outside, my door looks beautiful and elegant. Everyone who comes to the house for the first-time comment on it. The multi-locking mechanism has a smooth action and it is easy to use. The white wood grain on the inside finishes off the hallway like a designer window and door in one. Paul and his colleague went out of their way to make sure that I have the door and the finish just, as I wanted and that it worked seamlessly there on. We could not be happier. Thank You!
