Create Good Feng Shui in the Main Entry

Question: How Can I Create Good Feng Shui in the Main Entry of My Home?

I understand from your feng shui blog that the main entry is very important for the feng shui of the house. Can you please tell how to create good feng shui in my main entry? Thank you!

Answer: Yes, 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.

Basically, good feng shui in your main entry means a main entry that is able to welcome and direct the flow of feng shui energy into the house versus pushing the energy away or weaken it.

Below are some basic tips for creating good feng shui in your main entry. Be sure to implement these tips along with the tips for a strong feng shui main door, as one does not work well without the other.

Find out the feng shui bagua area of your main entry and use the best colors and shapes to strengthen the needed feng shui element. Should you use red color in your main entry? Or maybe blue? Feng shui-wise, it all depends on the bagua area, so start with it.

Create a strong, welcoming "landing space" for energy. From a modest side table with a small lamp to a big round table placed in the center of your hallway with a flower-filled vase on top - there are many good feng shui decor choices to welcome Chi, or energy, into your home. If your space is limited, even a good quality main entry rug with vibrant colors or beautiful art and a strong wall color as a focal point can do the job.
Remedy all the potential "feng shui disasters" in the main entry. Below are some of the feng shui main entry challenges you might have in your home, along with some easy tips to help you out:

Mirror facing the main door

Staircase too close / facing the front door

Wall too close / blocking the flow from the front door 

Bathroom over the main door

Look for creative feng shui decor remedies to let good energy into your home and be disciplined and consistent with your efforts of creating better feng shui energy in your main entry.

Some homes are easier to deal with than the others, but remember, you are the one who chose the current living arrangements. Do your best with what you have, and better things will follow.
