Feng Shui philosophy has many rules. It’s objective is to allow positive energy to enter your home. In this article, we’ll discuss ways you can apply the Feng Shui style to your main entrance or hallway. This way, you can take advantage of all the benefits of good Qi.

Tips to apply Feng Shui to your main entrance

When we talk about Feng Shui, we’re referring to decoration that guarantees prosperity, abundance, wealth, and good interpersonal relationships. For this reason, this philosophy focuses on the main entrance of your home to apply its principles.

The front door and hallway of your home welcome you, whether you live there or not. Therefore, its energy must be strong enough to attract the positive and repel the negative. Take a look at the following tips to channel positive energy into your home.

1. Flowers by the door

Flowers create a warm and welcoming environment.

Flowers and plants symbolize growth and advancement, whether spiritual or economic. They are associated with the wood element and create a comfortable environment for your home.

When your house is filled with flowers, it will attract more energy and harmony. Upon arriving home, you can enjoy the beauty, balance, and harmony…and leave behind your daily problems.

2. Non-facing doors

Don't have your doors directly facing one another.

If you’re building your home, pay special attention to this Feng Shui maxim. You cannot have a door in front of the main entrance since energy doesn’t know where to go and eventually disappears. In this case, the best thing to do is achieve an L between the main door and the first means of access so that the doors aren’t facing each other.

3. Light and air

Natural light can brighten up any room in your home.

Even if you don’t use the front door of your house a lot (many people enter through the kitchen or garage), this means of access is the most important. Therefore, you should open the front door to let in light and air.

We also recommend adding small glass windows to allow the sun to enter. Make sure the house name and number is well lit!

4. Size and quality

Keep the outside of your front door presentable at all times.

Another aspect of Feng Shui focuses on the general condition of your front door. This reflects the status, prestige, and position of your family.

It should be an appropriate size and in good condition (painted and clean). Furthermore, the locks and hinges should work perfectly and not make noise when you open or close the door.

5. A coat rack

A coat rack can help you organize your articles of clothing.

When you enter your home after a tiring day, the first thing you want to do is get rid of everything that’s burdening you: your purse, jacket, keys, shoes, and umbrella. To ensure that everything is hung up in an organized manner, get a coat rack.

What does Feng Shui say about coat racks? This is a good idea as long as you keep it neat and tidy. This means that you shouldn’t accumulate jackets and bags on or around the rack because they’ll block the energy.

6. Cleanliness and spaciousness

The main entrance of your home should never be cluttered.

Both the exterior of the house and the hall must be neat and clean at all times. This gives the home a more spacious appearance, and thus energy can flow throughout the house without any obstacles.

We recommend sweeping the dry leaves from the entrance so that there’s no stray debris hanging around when you open the door.

7. Yes to the natural

Place plants outside your front door to make the main entrance more homely.

To apply Feng Shui to the exterior of your main entrance, you should remove everything artificial. Opt for natural plants and flowers, and include a waterfall if you have room.

Place a rug made of wool or any natural material in front of your door. This provides a warm welcome!

Finally, we recommend that you buy a sentry statuette for the entrance, which will symbolically be in charge of guarding your home. It’s a perfect host for positive energy and an effective obstacle for negative energy.
