A strong feng shui front door is a door that has good proportions in comparison to the house as a whole. This simple point is often forgotten during home renovations, so you can often see two or three story houses with tiny front doors.

Question: What is the Meaning of A Strong Front Door, or Main Door in Feng Shui?
I am a bit confused on the meaning of strong feng shui front door. My understanding is that is is very important to have a front door with strong feng shui, but how exactly does a "strong feng shui front door" look like? Please help. Thank you!
Answer: Yes, the front door, or the main door, is very important in feng shui, no matter we are speaking of the front door of a home or the front door of a business.

In feng shui, the house gets its Chi, or energy nourishment through the front door, so the stronger, healthier and more balanced the front door is, the stronger and better the quality of energy available for those who live in the house.

So, how does a strong feng shui front door look and feel like? Good question. Here is what defines a front door with strong, good feng shui.
  1. An unobstructed, open flow of energy to the front door. This means there are no recycling bins, cracked old pots with dead plants or any other items blocking the flow of feng shui energy to your front door.

  2. A front door that is well-cared for. A front door that opens widely without squeaking, a front door that has good looking door hardware and paint. No odd looking, unused nails around the door frame, no rusty doorknobs, no worn out Christmas wreaths in June... you get the idea.

  3. A front door that is in harmony with the feng shui element of its direction. The direction of the front door is very important in feng shui, so in order to harness the best energy it is advisable to choose a feng shui color that is in harmony with the feng shui element of its direction.

  4. A strong feng shui front door opens up to a smooth flow of energy in the main entry. The efforts of attracting the best feng shui energy to your house will be wasted if your main entry does not have good feng shui. You need to channel the good feng shui energy throughout your house, and it all starts in your main entry.

  5. A front door that "is enough", or has a good relationship with the house structure. A strong feng shui front door is a door that has good proportions in comparison to the house as a whole. This simple point is often forgotten during home renovations, so you can often see two or three story houses with tiny front doors that might have been enough when the house was initially just a small, ones story structure.

Feng shui is all about balance and harmony, so be sure you check the energy of your front door often to assure good feng shui Chi flowing into your house.
