How to Feng Shui Mondays | How to Feng Shui Your Front Foyer and Main Entrance

Are you looking to Feng shui your front door or the main entrance to your home? Today our entrances to our homes have many purposes and much pressure to perform well, be functional, deal with keeping stuff that enters the home organized, as well as look great nd welcome our friends, unexpected guest and family.

Having moved from a small condo to a Bungalow, to a two-story to a back-facing townhouse, I TOTALLY understand the frustrations with dealing with the first thing you see when you get home…Your  Front Foyer! 

And If it’s small and a mess this dictates how you feel when you come home. 

Your Home should be where you rest & relax and rejuvenate your self, eat and let your hair down.

So why doesn’t it reflect that?

Let’s take a look.

Here is a little bit of Feng Shui you can implement right away in your Front Foyer or Main Entrance.

Feng Shui your Front Foyer


Sometimes this is not always the most welcoming area that I enjoy coming home to. Today I am going to help you fix up your front foyer or Main Entrance, and make it your Special little welcome home area you can’t wait to come home to!

For Today’s Lesson

Are you Ready?For How to Feng Shui MOnMondays are going to Focus on Your Front FOyer or whatever you Use in your home as YOur Main Entrance. No Judgement, I use my back door.


I have learned that in Feng shui the first point of entry to your home for you and for good energy is the main entrance you use to enter your home.

This is sometimes a side door, door off the garage, the front main entrance or in my case the back door.

I know right?

Let’s face it, in today’s fast-paced lifestyle, we use whatever is more convenient and closest to the driveway or in Feng Shui whichever door we know has better Good Feng Shui luck!

The First Step | Clean up the place by tidying.

As soon as you walk into your home what do you see?  Is it welcoming?
Let’s start with a quick tidy. Grab a laundry basket and toss everything into it and move it to the dining room or another area of the house.

*You will have to come back to this later on and cherry pick what belongs back to your new special area. 

The Second Step | Clean up the place Literally.

Yup go and Give the entrance area a good quick sweep and mop and quick cleaning. Now you are ready to go!

You are going to set up a little special touch-down area for you to place your purse, keys, grocery bag, gloves, etc for when you first enter your home.

Feng Shui Tip~remember your purse is your Money, please don’t place this on the floor.

You will call this little special touch-down area your personal landing zone! 

This will be a little table, a chair, a shelf on a bookshelf even, be creative and use what you have available for now.

Once you have set this up it defines the area. Keeps it neat and tidy and gives you a peace of mind when you arrive home.

Do you lack creativity and need some quick inspiration?

 I have created an entire board on Pinterest which you can access here that has all my small front foyer inspirational ideas.

The Pinterest Board is called Foyers and Front Entrances l Small Foyers. 

There is something for everyone there, Big or small, whether you are living in a rental home or an apartment or a condo,


Now for the fun part!

The Final Step | Decorate the place Beautifully with some Functionality.

Did you complete the quick tidy? Check!

Did you remove all the clutter? Check!

Did you clean sweep mop?Check!

Great Job! You can always come back to this once your design idea is implemented. 🙂
