Good feng shui design in your main entrance is very important for obvious reasons. It is through the main entrance that the house absorbs its main feng shui energy nourishment, so you have to focus on creating good feng shui in your main entrance if you want to live in a good feng shui house. Here you will find tips to help you create good feng shui in your main entry design, as well as solutions for various main entrance feng shui challenges.

Create Good Feng Shui In Your Main Entry

The main entry is very important in feng shui because it is through the main door that the house absorbs its Chi or feng shui energy nourishment. When a house has good energy circulating throughout, the people who live in the house experience higher levels of well-being.

Create A Strong Feng Shui Front Door

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. So, how does a strong feng shui front door look and feel like? Here is what defines a front door with good feng shui.

Have A Bathroom Facing the Front Door?

The reason a bathroom door facing the main door is considered bad feng shui is simple: the Universal energy, or Chi, comes into the house through the front door. If your bathroom is facing the front door, most of the good energy will easily escape through the bathroom, leaving little or no good feng shui energy to nourish the house.

Front Door Is Facing the Back Door

As feng shui is all about creating a balanced and harmonious flow of energy in your home, the direct alignment of two or more doors will create a harsh quality of feng shui energy resembling Sha Chi. 

A Staircase Facing the Front Door

When a staircase is facing the main door directly, the feng shui energy rushes up quickly to either the lower or, the higher floor. This leaves the main floor without good feng shui energy nourishment, meaning it potentially creates a challenging feng shui house.

A Main Entry Mirror Facing the Front Door

A mirror facing the main door is one of the two big taboos in feng shui (the second one being a mirror facing a bed.) The reason it is not recommended to have a mirror facing the main door is that the mirror pushes away all the good feng shui energy that is about to enter the house.

As the house receives its energetic nourishment through the front door, having a big mirror pushing away all the good energy can certainly create a challenging feng shui scenario.

A Bathroom Above the Main Entry

One of the concerns you might have with the feng shui of a new or existing house is a bathroom over the main entry. As the main door is very important in feng shui, should you consider a house with a bathroom over the main door to have bad feng shui?
