How do you design a happy and healthy entryway that brings you positive energy? Hint: Read on to find tips on how to feng shui your entryway.

Your entryway is the first place you see when entering your home. It dictates your mood when you walk through the door, so it’s important to create an organized entryway.

However, according to interior experts, it’s also important to create a good feng shui design layout to attract good energy. Feng shui experts believe that the main entrance of the house absorbs the main feng shui energy nourishment. When your home has good energy circulating throughout, it will also have a positive effect on you, such as you experience higher levels of well-being.

Today, we’re going to give you tips on how to feng shui your entryway for a happy and healthy space.

Bring Greenery Indoors

An easy idea to feng shui your entryway is to bring in feng shui houseplants. According to Anjie Cho, architect, author, and feng shui expert, aside from the fact that the color green is associated with healing, adding houseplants can strengthen the energy of one particular feng shui element: wood. The wood element is associated with abundance, family, health, and money.

Feng Shui houseplants are believed to be auspicious once you put them in different areas within your home because it can boost positive energy in different aspects of life. If you’re interested to add feng shui houseplants, we recommend that you choose plants with round leaves and soft shapes since these plants can boost positive energy.

Great choices are CalatheaJade PlantLucky Bamboo, and Money Tree.

Decorate With a Few Crystals

Of quartz, adding a few crystals is another way to feng shui your entryway. Crystals help alter the energy of your space. It makes the space calm, peaceful and relaxing. Plus, it helps you clear your mind and leave the outside world behind once you enter your home.

To prevent unwanted energy and to protect your space, we recommend placing two black Tourmaline crystals on either side of your doorway.

Eliminate Clutter

We all want to make a good impression, that’s why we keep everything in our home organized, especially our entryway since it’s the first thing our guests will see. Additionally, an organized entryway improves your mood, provides a peaceful space to unwind in, and saves you time from finding your key.

Keep the Space Bright

Pay attention to lighting when you feng shui your entryway. We recommend that you install light sources with different heights, such as a ceiling pendant and a lamp. If you’re lucky enough to have natural light in your entryway, we suggest that you open your blinds or windows regularly. The sunlight will help cleanse your entryway’s energy.

Take Care of Your Front Door

This is one of the most overlooked parts, but it’s actually pretty important when you decide to feng shui your entryway. According to Heather Askinosie, co-founder of Energy Muse, crystal and feng shui expert, and holistic healer, “On an energetic level, issues with the door are believed to make bringing in new opportunities more difficult. So make sure that your door is in pristine condition without cracks, scratches, or chips.

Watch Out for Mirror Placement

Mirrors are used to make a space look bigger and brighter, especially in the entryway. However, there’s this one mistake that I often see, and it’s the mirror placement. Most people will hang the mirror facing the door, which is not a good idea when you feng shui your entryway because when the chi enters your home, it bounces off the mirror, and goes back outside. It’s best to hang your mirror on a wall perpendicular to your door. For example, over a console.
