Decorating & Furniture/area rug in foyer

Question
My foyer is about 13' long  x 9' wide.  What size of area rug should be used in front of the door?

Answer
Hi June,
You have a nice sized foyer and I like to see a rug that is not too skimpy.  I think it looks nice when it covers the entire area in front of the door.  So, with that said  a 5 x 7 or 5 x 8, would probably be the most appropriate size.
