The size of the door should be well balanced to the dwelling, not too small or oversized in proportion to the rest of the house. Too narrow an entrance stifles the flow of good ch’i entering the house, and you will have to invest more time, money and energy to achieve your goals if you live in a house with a small entrance.
Well-situated front doors are wide and lead into a foyer that open to other rooms in the house. The foyer acts as a buffer to slow the fast flowing energy as it enters your home. The front door should never open directly into the living room without some kind of buffer to slow the energy. If you have no choice put an attractive three-fold screen a few feet from the entrance with a healthy green plant in front of the screen. The screen slows the good ch’i energy so that it can flow softly around the screen.
The first things you or visitors see when entering your home set the mood for the rest of the stay. Clutter should not be allowed to accumulate anywhere, but the entrance is a particularly bad place for untidiness. People have a tendency to put things at the door as a reminder to get rid of the things with good intentions of taking them away. But have you noticed even with yourself you leave it there, because you are in a hurry and will do that later. Later, turns into days later. This is bad for the subconscious mind. It is there when you arrive back home and due to the rush it continues to stay there. If you want good feng shui in the home taking this stuff away should be first on your priority list
When you look out of your front door, you should not face a hill, and the door itself should not be hidden by shrubbery. It is not a good situation if there are obstructions in front of the door, such as a steep hill, another larger building, or any kind of over-sized or massive structure.
The entrance should be well lit and airy. The best shape for a door is oval or square at the top. Solid wood doors are better than glass doors. The entrance should not have sharp angles from other buildings pointing toward the door. You can place a mirrored PaKua to deflect some of the negative energy from entering your home.
