With so many people working from home, it makes sense to choose a layout with a dedicated work zone. But not everyone needs a large den/library. These standout home designs boast small but thoughtful offices.

Handy Flex Room Near the Front

This new plan keeps things simple, modern, and fresh. The family room flows into the island kitchen for a contemporary feeling. On the way in from the garage, a drop zone and space for a bench and lockers keep things organized, especially in the muddy springtime with boots and coats to shed. The flex room is just the right size for working from home, or perhaps serving as a hobby space. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Gorgeous Farmhouse

It doesn't get much more open than this one-story plan, with all the main living areas flowing into one another. But when it's time to do some work, or take an important call, the little office near the front will come in handy. Also convenient: abundant storage, like the master suite's huge closet that opens into the laundry room. Don't miss the spacious back porch with an outdoor kitchen.

Game Room and Tech Space

Check out the spacious game room in this one-story layout. Adjoining it and behind barn doors, an e-space provides a fun little hideaway for homework or video calls. There's also a larger study near the front of the home. Owners will be dazzled by the master suite's spa-like bathroom. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Wine Zone and Pocket Office

With a wine zone just off the pocket office, this plan prioritizes both work and play. Or head outside to the rear porch to unwind. The spacious laundry room boasts lockers and a side-door entrance. See more images, information, and the floor plans.
