Is Main Door Facing Lift Door Good or Bad Feng Shui?

The main door is one of the 3 most important areas that you need to pay extra attention in residential Feng Shui. It is the mouth of “Chi”, meaning the first point that receives the incoming energy flow. There are a few common external structures to avoid facing when choosing your new house. One of the most commonly seen is the main door facing the lift that might cause problems for the household members.

Why Main Door Facing Lift is Bad Feng Shui?

The opening and closing of the lift door symbolize the mouth of tiger waiting to prey, also known as “Open Mouth Sha”. It can bring disharmony in the family and even increase the probability of unexpected accident and operation.

Besides this, the movement of the opening and closing of the lift door create rushing Qi into your main door. It also causes the energy to disperse and cannot be gathered. This layout will cause difficulty for the members in the house to accumulate wealth and assets.

From the scientific and logical point of view, it can also cause health issue to the family members. This is because there might be many people or pets using the lift that might carry virus with the possibility of transmitting into the house. Privacy will be a concern too, since anyone coming out of the lift will see you straightaway.
