Hello yapyap3.....good to meet you.
Acutally, in magical terms there is some truth to this. When doing protection work in a home, every portal should be sealed ritually....doors, windows, drains, electrical points, phone lines....everything. Anything material that moves in and out of your home could be a conduit, and anything that leaves a space. I know people will choose to laugh at this, but unless you've been plagued with unwanted visitors and tried everything to get rid of them, you don't really know, do you....? Also, I don't remember reading anywhere that there is only one given way for spirits to move....if a spirit can inhabit an object, as many people believe, then they could just as easily use material to move, as well as what we perceive as thin air.
And Nventual's point about mirrors is a good one, and a Feng Shui taboo, if you've ever taken time to study that discipline. Mirrors should not be in the bedroom at all if possible, and if you must have them, they should not relflect you when you're lying in bed. It's like creating a body double of yourself...and it's also a portal of other dimensions. Otherwise, if the door shut makes you feel safe, just do it. I sleep with mine open so my dog has free run of the house and that does the trick for me. It's an individual thing.
