In today’s mobile world, it’s not uncommon for more people than ever before to work from home. Entrepreneurs are running businesses from their homes, or companies are allowing parents to have flex hours to greet the kids after school and still get work done. People in businesses such as real estate often need to have their work station easily accessible so they can answer emails any time of the day, night, or weekend.

At Arthur Rutenberg Homes, it’s not uncommon for us to work with buyers of custom homes in Middle Tennessee who want a comfortable home office included in the design. And while many families might repurpose an unused bedroom to function as a home office, more often these days, they want a designated space right on the ground floor, with all the features that make any office comfortable and functional. And many such workers might host clients right in their home office, so they need a space that’s welcoming to both family members and visitors.

If you’re considering a home office in your custom home design, you might want to include built-in desks, shelves, and cabinets. This makes it easy to set up computers, printers, phones, and charging stations – you can add spaces especially designed for these functions. Cabinets and bookshelves make it simple to file documents and keep the office organized. You can even design your home office so that items can be easily tucked away if you don’t want guests to your home to see a messy desk.

You may also want a home office big enough for you and your spouse to work, or even to host a couple of employees if you’re running your business from the house. Either way, your custom homebuilder can customize your home office to meet your needs perfectly.

If you’d like to include a home office in your floor plan, contact Arthur Rutenberg Homes today to see the options we have available and how we can design the perfect home office for you.
