FENG SHUI: ATTRACT POSITIVITY BY PAINTING YOUR FRONT DOOR

Your front door is so much more than an entranceway – it’s a chance for your home to make a statement and say, “Hello, world!” What really speaks volumes is a fresh coat of curb appeal. Go bold with the paint color of your front door and life instantly becomes more interesting.   

Feng Shui masters teach that the front door draws in beneficial Chi, which positively energizes and harmonizes your home. Where the eye goes, so does Chi – so it only stands to reason that the best way to attract Chi is with an eye-catching front door bearing a bold paint color. Red, the traditional color of luck in Chinese culture, is a popular paint color choice as it symbolizes good fortune as well as status and sanctuary. 

But red is far from the only paint color suitable for an attractive front door. In fact, our in-store paint experts have handpicked these five amazing Benjamin Moore paint colors to help express style on the exterior – while rolling out the welcome mat for guests and the flow of good chi into your home.
