My obsession with doors started at a very young age. It sounds silly but I have always been fascinated with them. I remember being in middle school and riding my bike around the neighborhood in the evening. I loved looking at a home, the surroundings, and of course, its front door. At the time I had no idea how important a front door could be to the overall curb appeal of a home, or even more importantly, its feng shui.

Feng shui experts have coined the front door to be the “mouth of chi”, in which all energy enters and exists the home. Color, condition and cardinal direction can impact your home’s overall feng shui.

In addition, maintaining your front door’s appearance is equally important. A front door is a crucial detail that gives others a snapshot into your life – how you live and what you are about. Always make sure to keep your front door in pristine condition – free of clutter, dirt, bugs and webs. Make sure as weather and elements tarnish the condition, you repaint, repair or replace if necessary. A broken, old or needed paint job may scare potential buyers. By maintaining your front door, you will ensure top dollar when you sell. Again, this is one of the first details buyers see when they enter your home!!
