When it comes to choosing the color of the front door, many settle for white, brown, gray, or green—common choices that we often see when visiting other homes. Since the home’s entrance play a big role in attracting good energy into your space, it’s a must to pick an auspicious color based on the direction your door is facing and its corresponding Feng Shui element.

According to an article published by The Spruce, it is through the front door “that the house receives its Feng Shui nourishment of energy.” Depending on the direction your door faces and its matching element, you can choose a harmonious color, a color that is linked to the element, or a productive color, a color that nourishes the governing element of the direction. You can determine the compass direction of your front door using a magnetic compass or a compass app that you can install on your smartphone. Once you know the direction of your front door, here are color suggestions to keep in mind:
