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 colour 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 colour. Red, the traditional colour of luck in Chinese culture, is a popular paint colour choice as it symbolizes good fortune as well as status and sanctuary. 

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

Blue Danube 2062-30: As featured in Benjamin Moore’s Color Trends 2020, this extraordinary, deep peacock blue is so inviting, it’ll have your friends waltzing straight in to your humble abode.

Kendall Charcoal HC-166: Dramatically deep and delicious, this modern grey paint colour is very on-trend. It’ll certainly give the neighbours something to talk about!

Knoxville Gray HC-160: Time-honoured and elegant, this mysterious grey is something of a paint colour chameleon. Changes in light encourage undertones of blue and green to emerge almost hourly.

Marblehead Gold HC-11: Is there any better way to greet the day (or the paper boy) than with a mustardy-yellow door? An optimistic pop of colour shows you prefer to see the paint can half full.

Caliente AF-290: Of course, we had to include one ravishing red – and this one’s a real stunner! Vibrant and charismatic, this sumptuous shade will make a lasting impression on all admirers.

 

Our paint experts strongly recommend using Benjamin Moore’s Aura Grand Entrance, specially formulated for front doors to give a high-gloss or satin finish like no other. Bringing rich, vivid colour and exceptional paint durability to your exterior doors and trim, Aura Grand Entrance by Benjamin Moore can be tinted in any Benjamin Moore colour of your choice and also comes in exclusive shades like:
