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:

For the East Facing Door

Given the wood element, you can paint your front door green, brown, or any wood tone. If these options do not match the overall look of your home, you can also work with black, blue, and purple.

For the Southeast Facing Door

Since the Feng Shui element of the Southeast facing door is also wood, you can work with green, brown, and wood tones as well. Invite luck into your space by considering other favorable colors like very light yellow and sandy colors.

For the South Facing Door

The fire element lets you liven up the front door with colors like yellow, purple, orange, magenta, and the 2019 Color of the Year, coral, to name a few. If these options don’t suit your taste, you can always opt for safe choices like green, brown, and wood tones.

For the Southwest Facing Door

According to the same article on The Spruce, the Southwest facing door is related to the earth element, with the energies associated with it include love and marriage. Get luck on your side by painting your front door beige or clay. Too neutral? Make a bold statement by experimenting with red, yellow, or pink.

For the West Facing Door

Metal is the governing energy for the West facing door, making metallic colors, white, and gray as the top options.

For the Northwest Facing Door

If your door faces the northwest, you can also work with white, gray, and metallic colors. To nourish the metal element, your other options include light yellow, clay, and beige.

For the North Facing Door

The north is associated with the water element so you can paint your front door black or blue. Too bold to match the overall look of your space? Settle for something more neutral like white or gray.

For the Northeast Facing Door

The Spruce shares that “the northeast-facing door is an opening to the energy of spiritual growth and cultivation.” Harness the positive vibes in your space by working with light yellow, clay, or beige. You can also choose a color related to the fire element like red, orange, or magenta.
