Now, here’s the wonderful part. Despite their differences in style, color and texture, each of these entryways illustrates a feng shui tip that you can use. Fans of this Chinese design philosophy believe that you’ll invite positive energy into your home by following some basic principles.
I’m no expert. But lately, I’ve had entryways on my mind. I think it’s because of my new blog; it’s got me thinking about first impressions, wondering what visitors see, and interested in how to make someone feel welcome.
And suddenly, I was curious to learn some feng shui tips that might be easy and fun to incorporate into my home’s entrance.
So here’s what I learned.
- Do you know someone that exudes warmth and exuberance?
- Do you know someone that lifts your mood and makes you laugh; a person who is full of life and optimism?
- Now imagine if you could draw that same kind of positive energy into your home every day. Because according to Feng Shui design, your home’s entryway is your personal gateway through which good energy, called Chi, flows into your house and yes, into your life too.
According to feng shui design, Red doors attract good energy.

A black door invites wealth into your home…
And there’s more. It turns out that incorporating these four tips will actually create a sense of coziness and functionality to your entryway.
Feng Shui Tips for your Entryway
1. Pay attention to lighting. According to feng shui design, darkness in small spaces can have a negative impact on your mood. Choose lighter colors in your entry. Overhead lighting is a must, and put a favorite lamp on a table near the door. When you go out for the evening leave it on, and you’ll be amazed at how welcoming this soft light can be when you return. I do this, and it’s really true.
2. Never have clutter at the front door! Offer a place to “hang your hat” and stay awhile.
Not everyone has a foyer, or large nook area near the front door. Some of us don’t have any walls that separate our entry from the rest of the house. But from a feng shui perspective, clutter by the front door can make the occupant feel blocked and restricted in their life, so we need to be creative in order to control the flow of good energy in this area, and offer places to put things. For instance, place a small table near the door, with a spot for keys and mail. A basket for shoes. A hook for purses and personal items. And in a perfect world, we would all have a lovely bench or chair nearby, so we could sit down while we removed our shoes.

3. Find a spot in your entry for Mirror or Artwork
Have you noticed how often mirrors are placed in the entryway? Not only do mirrors make tight places feel more open, they reflect light from the outside. But feng shui experts have a warning: beware of the mirror’s ability to reflect everything in it. It’s important to know what your mirror is reflecting, and to make sure it’s something lovely, in order to foster positive energy. Avoid reflecting hard edges. And one more feng shui tip: don’t place a mirror directly across your door, instead, the mirror should be on a side wall near the door.why tech sales interview question how much product to bring to a craft show where from phone number when entrepreneurs face a significant how many tech jobs are there where to answers questions where science and spirituality meet where does technology comes from how many manager does treasure have what science is on the act where technology is used what science is taught in 6th grade where to solve math equations where to sell technology where startup was filmed how much solution in contact lens case when engineering counselling starts 2022 what determines development how much manager's check bpi how technology affects our lives how products are distributed when science goes wrong when management is incompetent from where was solar system originated where to manufacture products where london is situated who developed the hierarchy of needs what product protects polish from chipping who design nazi uniforms where london bridge is located when design user interface why business analyst which product results from the breakdown of fibrin when management ignores your concerns what manager has the most wins how far london to paris how many solutions does this system have how much workers compensation insurance who roadmap ntds who company makes the best polarized sunglasses how project ipad to tv from where science came how technology affects mental health where is liverpool manager from entrepreneur who failed then succeeded how many teaching positions are open in florida who is engineering explained who business analyst where is danielle from design star startup who is vera which products are toxic how solution is formed why device unreachable iphone why device drivers are important how much science diet to feed cat how business works what product protects polish from chipping what teaching has taught me how many manufacturer in malaysia how technology changed our lives entrepreneur who are successful what are different types of design how many workers does amazon have why product management interview answer how technology has changed education where is start up how many entrepreneurs have a college degree where is dmitry from project runway now what tech jobs are in demand how much solution to use in vax platinum how workers compensation works which technology is used to adjust weegy why solution is called homogeneous mixture who roadmap access to medicines what solution does walter have where is bio tech from where is technology how technological environment affect business how product management works with ux how management is multidimensional when manufacturing date where device manager windows 10 how many science classes are required to graduate where to design stickers why startup india which company is best for car loan where to find workers near me why manufacturing engineering how many equipment slots terraria which product requires an appraisal how often answer how to find development opportunities where to buy tech fleece how often do entrepreneurs travel where's waldo solutions where to project singing voice how many management colleges in india teaching where i'm from poem how often should disinfectant solutions be changed how many solutions does the pair of equations where is mondo from project runway who roadmap 2020 where company is a sham what device is this mac address where to go london whose product is dr pepper how much start up capital do you need which technology simulates higher order thinking how far technology has come how many product managers at google how much equipment was left behind in vietnam where is hipyo tech from which london airport is closest to london who started whose line is it anyway why company interview question in startup who ends up with who what system is the pancreas in roadmap when can you meet indoors
