Entrance/Foyer Feng Shui Design Dos and Don’ts

17September10

                                 

Your entrance starts right outside your door. Look at the environment surrounding your door, and ensure your home entrance is clearly defined, well lit and inviting. Watch out for big trees, utility posts or roads coming right at your door. Those send negative energies to your home. You also ideally don’t want to be located in front of a cemetery, a cross road, a bar or any disruptive establishment.

Your front door is called the “mouth of Chi.” The entrance is the space where Chi energy first enters. It is also the space where family and friends are welcomed. That is where people get the first impression of your home and where you get the first feel of home when coming back from a long day of work away.

Your foyer needs to feel inviting, bright and free of clutter in order to let the maximum good energy come in to nourish your home and support your life. Here are some great Feng Shui tips to keep your entrance sending you great energy.

  1. Install good lighting, and use a light color on your walls to brighten up the space and make it welcoming.
  2. Place a mirror on one of the side walls in your entry hall to enlarge the space and bring in more energy. Don’t display a mirror directly opposite the door. This bounces back the Chi energy out before it nourishes your home.
  3. Use inspirational artwork to help support your journey and life goals.
  4. Keep the entry clutter free by removing shoes, boxes, luggage, children’s toys, etc.
  5. Remove dirty rugs and replace with fresh, welcoming new ones. Be sure to keep it tidy.
  6. Replace a damaged door or loose handle, as these get in the way of your opportunities.
