What Does Your Red Front Door Mean

Posted on January 15, 2016 at 12:39 PM Comments comments (0)
If you have a home in the Catskills or Hudson Valley upstate NY areas you may have a front door painted red. I was curious, as to the meaning of a homes front door painted red, as Kellogg's Painting does paint a lot of doors red in the Catskills and Hudson Valley New York areas. 

Going back in time a homes front door painted the color red meant welcome. Tired travelers using horse and buggy would know that they could stop in your home and rest, as they would be welcomed.

This Hudson Valley homes front door was painted red by the painters at Kellogg's Painting in Leeds, NY. 






If you want welcoming energy then painting your Hudson Valley or Catskills homes front door red is for you. In Feng Shui your homes front door is known as the "Mouth of Chi", which energy enters. If you believe in Feng Shui then painting your door red welcomes positive energy into your home. 


Churches painted the doors red to represent the blood of Christ.Once you walked in the church through the red doors that would signify you where on holy ground. Some people believe that a red front door will protect its homes occupants from evil. 

When a home owner paid off their mortgage in Scotland they would paint the front door red. This would signify that they now own the home debt free. 

These may not be all of the reasons for a red front door, but through research they seem to be the most common meanings of a front door painted red.
