Do you need a Red Door? Will it bring you prosperity? Is a red colored door really lucky in Feng shui?
Color is very important in Feng shui. Different colors have different energy and therefore attract different things.
In ancient China, red doors were associated with nobility, however this isn’t ancient China and even though red is auspicious, and even attractive, a red door isn’t for every home. In ancient China and Japan, red was used for the entrances to shrines. Building codes in China required that only high-ranking government officials could paint their doors red, which is one reason why red is associated with prosperity.
In the West, red came to represent a welcoming color. In the days of horse and buggy, a red door indicated to travelers it was a place for hospitality and a good night’s sleep. In the Catholic tradition, red is an auspicious color; as the color of the blood of Christ, a red door on the church signified sanctity. In Scottish homes traditionally painted their doors red when they had finished paying off the mortgage.
It is best to have a front door which has a color that represents the vibration of the compass direction it faces:
To determine the direction of your front door, stand inside the front door or interior of your home and look straight out of the front door. That is the direction your door faces! Never take the direction of your front door while standing outside looking in.
