Read Part I: The Power of A Strong Feng Shui Front Door

If you cannot repaint your front door in order to improve its feng shui, know that it is still possible to create a strong feng shui front door. This might take a bit more work and creativity, but it is sure worth it because a house with a weak or blocked front door cannot have good feng shui.

I assume you have read Part I: The Power of A Strong Feng Shui Front Door, so now let's look at various front door decor solutions for your house.



To make it simple, I grouped doors by the feng shui element of their direction. There are 8 Bagua areas in feng shui that correspond to 8 compass directions; you create excellent feng shui when you support and nourish the specific feng shui direction of your front door.

Your front door will fall in one of the 5 categories mentioned below (because of 5 feng shui elements.) If you need to improve the feng shui of your front door but cannot repaint it, here's what you can do.

For a front door that is facing:

EAST (67.5 to 112.5) or SOUTHEAST (202.5 to 247.5), you want a door color that is nourishing and supporting the WOOD feng shui element.

Good for your door colors are green, brown, blue, black and all earthy colors.
Bad for your door colors are: white, gray, red, orange, strong yellow, purple, pink.

The Wood element can be expressed with the following good feng shui decor for your door:

  • Lush greenery as expressed in healthy vibrant plants
  • Choose pots in colors black, blue, green or earthy tones
  • Jute doormat in a rectangular shape
  • Water fountain close to entrance is very good
  • Create earthy energy with surrounding rocks, square shapes, etc

AVOID a strong presence of:

  • Metal element decor (metal pots, shiny metal hardware, round shapes, etc)
  • Fire decor items by your door (red or purple spots, red doormat, triangular and star shapes, etc)

    SOUTH (157.5 to 202.5), you want a door color that is nourishing and supporting the FIRE feng shui element.

    Good for your door colors are: red, orange, strong yellow, purple, magenta, pink.
    Bad for your door colors are: blue and black.

    The Fire element can be expressed with the following good feng shui decor for your door:

    • Lush greenery as expressed in healthy vibrant plants
    • Choose pots in colors red, purple, green or brown
    • Jute doormat in a rectangular shape or with stars and triangles

    AVOID a strong presence of:

    • Earth element decor (clay pots, many rocks by the door, square shapes, etc)
    • Water decor items by your door (blue or black pots, water feature, wavy shapes, etc)
