    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. Keep it clean, fresh and flowing, this is always the best feng shui. The most auspicious feng shui flow of energy to the front door is a smooth and meandering path resembling water flow and not the direct sharp pathway that is so common in modern houses.

    A front door color in harmony with the feng shui element of the door 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 element of its direction.

    A front door 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. This might have been enough when the house was a small, one-story structure, but with the bigger house, you need a bigger front door.
