A reader asked an interesting feng shui question about her home door’s color: I need to paint the exterior of my chipped front door…facing North, under a covered porch. Are dark blue or black my best options, feng shui-wise? Kind of gloomy, those. Does the back door color matter?
A back door to some functions as a front door. Often people use the back door as a main entrance, and the front door is the “message of welcome” sent out to the world. Since feng shui is about your personal experience of space, whatever door you use most often should be the way that you view what is the front to you.
Does door color matter? Yes! Does it need to be a certain color depending on what direction your home faces on a compass? No! Fire colors are the best for street side front doors (reds, pinks, oranges….but especially red) as they are the most magnetically attractive to the eye. We want to draw people in with a powerful statement.
That said, if you have a door under a covered porch, you might want to consider a yellow or bright, sunny color to “illuminate” the entranceway. Me, I like hot pink. A floodlight with a motion sensor is another very good idea. You want your personal walkways to always be easy to navigate and to feel safe and light.
Hopefully this helps you make your decision— no gloom required!
