Welcome to Isheeria’s Healing Circles!
Today is a practical and detailed article on Things to keep in mind when it comes to planning, designing, and doing up your main door and entrance as per the guidelines of Feng Shui.
The first thing one notices about a house, or for that matter, any building – is its exterior and its entrance. And at the entrance, it is the main door which is the center of attention.
So, let’s go ahead and get straight into the discussion –
The Entrance must be aesthetically pleasing and reflect you – that is, your personality and what you are about.
If it is a business premise, then the entrance should convey what one can expect inside – the atmosphere, the ambiance, the trustworthy professionalism, etc.
At the entrance, the focus is on the main door.
The main door should preferably be in good condition, clean, and sparkling.
The main door should preferably be solid – be it double doors or two paneled.
Please keep in mind: If you generally open only one of the doors, then it should be the one which is larger in size. You can keep the smaller door closed.
DO’s and DON’Ts when designing your Main Door and Entrance:
There should not be a large body of water in front of the entrance.
Especially take care that there should not be any obstruction between the main gate of the premises and the entrance of your house.
Do not have a tree or a pillar directly opposite your main door.
Do not have a wall or a lift opposite your main door. Neither should you have a staircase beginning or ending opposite your main door – outside or inside the house.
Attention: Avoid having plants on both sides of the main door – it is believed to symbolize tears.
If your main door is made of glass, then make sure that you have a solid wall opposite it inside the house.
Revolving doors are auspicious in a commercial building, but not in a house.
On entering the building/ house – one should feel welcomed. The lighting in that area should be good, as well as the air circulation.
Avoid clutter at the entrance.
Do not have a mirror or a clock opposite the main door.
A wind chime at the entrance is very auspicious.
A small bell(s) on the door handle in a retail outlet encourages customers to enter.
Many houses have a staircase at the entrance. This is not considered auspicious as the Chi (energy) will rise very fast as well as move out very fast, without circulating through the house.
The best remedy for this is to have something solid (like a large planter) at the front of the staircase.
if you have three (3) doors in a line, forming a passage – it is not considered auspicious, especially if one of them is your main door.
The best remedy for this is to either have a windchime in the passage or to have ceiling lights in the passageway.
Remember, the main door of the house should also be the door most used while entering or exiting the house.
