In Feng Shui, the main door has been accorded prime importance as it lets in or keeps out the vital life-giving force that promotes health, wealth and luck.
The best position for the main door is in the middle of the house. However, if your house faces the correct direction, it becomes irrelevant if the front door is positioned in the middle of the house or to one side.
If the door is not in the desired position, create as much space as possible in front of it and keep the area uncluttered. You could also paint the door in the colour that relates to the direction the door is facing.

There is Space in Front of the House
Space in Front of the House :
An open space like a park, lawn or a garden in front of the main door of a house proves beneficial for its occupants.
Having such a space will make the occupants of that house more relaxed and let them enjoy the ordinary things in life.
There is a Toilet Near a Main Door
Toilet Near a Main Door :
The toilet door is opposite the main door or the kitchen door.
The air in the toilet is stagnant and such air should not be allowed to circulate in the house.
Wealth is constantly flushed away from the house. If the toilet is opposite the kitchen, there is a constant clash between the Yin and the Yang.
Keep the toilet door closed so that it is not visible as soon as one enters.
There are Windows on Either Side of the Door
Windows on Either Side of the Door :
The main door of the house has windows on either side of it.
If the financial situation is bad, it may be because the winds of good luck are dragged out through the windows on either side of the main door.
Place round-leafed plants on the window sills to prevent luck from flowing out.

Eaves Face a Main Door
Eaves Facing a Main Door:
The eaves of the roof of the house across the street, point directly towards the main door.
The electrical devices in the house are constantly spoilt and occupants are prone to minor accidents.
Hang a set of 'keiloon' or chimera inside the front door and place a round convex mirror above the front door to reflect the negative energies away from the house.
Main Door is at the Foot of Stairs
Main Door at the Foot of Stairs:
The front door of a house or a flat is at the foot of a flight of stairs and stands opposite the stairs.
Ill health and lethargy dog the occupants of this house.
Raise the threshold by about two inches so that one has to step over it to enter the house.
Main Door at the Top of Stairs
Main Door at the Top of Stairs:
The main door of a house or a flat is at the top of a flight of stairs and directly in front of it.
Money will tend to roll down the stairs. The occupants will find it difficult to save money.
Place a concave mirror above the door outside the house. This pulls in money and keeps it inside the house.
There is a Door Opposite a Lift or an Elevator
Doors Opposite a Lift or an Elevator :
The main door of a house, but most usually an apartment in a block of flats, is directly opposite a lift.
The fate and fortunes of the occupants of such a flat are adversely affected.
Place a convex mirror above the door outside the apartment to deflect the negative influence of the lift.
There are Too Many Doors
Too Many Doors
In some houses, especially the large ones, there are too many doors to keep the life-giving Ch'i force in.
If the Ch'i is not contained, the home is devoid of it's benefits.
Keep only a maximum of five doors ajar. The doors that are not in use should be kept closed.
