The front door, or the main door, is very important in
, no matter we are speaking of the front door of a home or the front door of a business.
In feng shui, the house gets its

So, how does a strong
look and feel like? Good question. Here is what defines a front door with strong, good feng shui.
An unobstructed, open flow of energy to the front door.

A front door that is well-cared for.
A front door that opens widely without squeaking, a front door that has good looking door hardware and paint. No odd looking, unused nails around the door frame, no rusty doorknobs, no worn out Christmas wreaths in June... you get the idea.
