One of the most frequent feng shui questions I receive is about the alignment of doors (both interior and exterior) and the influence of such door alignment on the feng shui energy of your home. As this is a concern with numerous houses, let's look into some easy feng shui solutions.
First, let's see why the direct alignment of two or more doors is considered bad feng shui. As feng shui is all about creating a balanced and harmonious flow of energy in your home, the direct alignment of...MORE two or more doors will create a harsh quality of feng shui energy resembling Sha Chi. Imagine Chi, or energy, as water flowing into your space. You will see that water will rush very fast through two or more directly aligned doors without slowing down to actually nourishing the space.
It is especially important to avoid a direct alignment of the front door with the back door. The reason you want to avoid this situation is because all good feng shui energy coming through the main door will easily escape through the back door without having a chance to circulate and nourish your home. Take this into consideration when you plan to renovate or remodel your home.
Your house needs good feng shui energy just like you need good quality air. It is important to be aware of the quality of feng shui energy created by your floor plan, and see what you can do to create better energy. Now, what easy feng shui solutions are available to you if you live in a house with a direct alignment of doors? Depending on your floor plan, your budget, as well as your decor style, here are some practical feng shui tips.
