For many buyers, how a home accommodates the technology and gadgets they depend on is an important part of the design mix. These plans offer clever, petite pocket offices and e-spaces engineered to keep phones and tablets within reach of living areas without cluttering the kitchen counter or table.

Drop Everything

A small office greets family members as they step in from the garage, letting them dump mail and their phones. That keeps the main gathering spaces—the great room and open island kitchen—free for relaxing. A corner pantry stores groceries. In the sleeping wing, the master suite features a private bathroom with a walk-in closet and dual sinks. Another bedroom uses a full hall bath, while bedroom three (which could serve as a full office) sits apart. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Just Enough of an Office

An upstairs office with desk space and a window is a great central location to print documents and plug in computers. The large playroom on this level can also serve as a home theater. Downstairs, a butler’s pantry and walk-in pantry offer more storage and counter space between the dining room and island kitchen. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Close but Out of Sight

A semi-enclosed desk area with windows sits right next to the dinette and is convenient to the generous master suite, providing a perfect spot for owners to drop their gadgets before retiring for the night. The kitchen pantry also boasts a window. Two more bedrooms share a hall bath, and a loft and bonus room upstairs can be finished for extra living space.

Built-In Organization

Just inside the garage entrance, a mini office is ready to receive mail and tech toys that need plugging in. A few more steps into the home brings owners to the open great room, island kitchen, and dining area. Three bedrooms wait to the right, including the master suite with its large walk-in closet.
