According to Feng Shui, a red front door encourages positive energy and welcomes people to the house. Early Americans believed that red doors were friendly and that they welcomed exhausted travelers in need of a place to sleep. A bright red door stands out against traditional black and white and it indicates the home’s residents are energetic and lively and welcoming to guests.

Dutch doors, the type of door that opens at both the top and bottom, was common in the Netherlands during the 17th century. The style was used in early American homes and is commonly found in New England. A door that opens in two places indicates the homeowner has trouble making decisions. When the door is painted gray, the color symbolizes compromise because gray is made by mixing black and white.

A glass front door reflects a person who likes modern things, has nothing to hide, is extroverted, friendly, and open-minded.
