Feng shui is a traditional philosophy and practice originating from ancient China. According to feng shui, you can establish harmony and create balance between you and the world surrounding you by arranging the elements in your space according to some guidelines. Feng shui experts all over the world guarantee that by embracing their philosophy, you will have a happier and healthier home!
Doors, connecting the spaces in your house, can regulate the flow of energy and are therefore an important part of feng shui practices. Whether you believe in it or not, it might be worth trying these simple feng shui tips we have compiled for the doors in your home.
Take care of your front door
Naturally, the entrance door is the first place you should think about if you want to create good feng shui in your home. For instance, metals have the qualities of joy, beauty, and precision; therefore, an aluminium entrance door would be great for your home’s feng shui.
Make sure that you keep your front door in good condition and replace it when needed. A run down, sticky door with cracks or scratches is believed to make bringing new opportunities into your house – and into your life – more difficult.
Don’t hang your clothing on the door
Especially when a door is regularly in use, it is essential for good feng shui to avoid hanging your clothing, coats, towels etc. on it. Such use of the door might make it unnecessarily heavy or even prevent it from fully opening, which translates into an added difficulty in your everyday life, as you move from one room of your house into another. Moreover, it will make the room feel cluttered and messy.
Lighting is key
Lighting is one of the main energy boosts according to feng shui. Natural light enlivens the space and can transform an entire room’s energy. An effective solution to exploit as much natural light as possible is to add some bifolding doors. Their ability to open up an entire wall space brings the outside in and will create a perfect harmony between your home and the outside environment.
Make sure all your doors can fully open
It might sound obvious, but having either internal or external doors that don’t open fully can be really bad for your home’s feng shui. They translate into an obstacle that you face every time you enter or exit a room or your home – however small the obstacle, it becomes significant due to its repetitiveness. A simple way to improve the flow of energy in your home and your life is to ensure that all the doors can easily open, without being hindered by furniture or other objects.
Don’t be afraid of colour
The feng shui philosophy encourages the use of colours. It is important, however, to use the right colours to invite the energy you desire into your home. For instance, blue notes bring relaxation, while green is considered the colour of growth. Red, on the other hand, is believed to bring abundance and wealth.
Moreover, the colour of your front door can say more than you think about your personality!
Whether you are a feng shui beginner or expert, these five tips are easily applicable and could bring positive change to your energy and daily living. Why not give it a try?
