One of the home plans my husband and I are considering for a new build has a small den right off the entry ( in the front of the house). The thing is, we will not use the den as the home has a family room and an additional large loft on the second floor which will be used as our 2nd family room. We will have a spare bedroom to use as a computer room. My question is, would it be odd to have a family command area in lieu of a den? I'm thinking built-in cubbies, desk with charging station, a place to keep the dog stuff ( food/water bowls, etc). I just can't visualize this in the front off the entry way. Do you think changing out the den would impact resale later on.....we are military family, so it is likely that we will eventually sell. I just think a central command area would be much more functional for us then just putting in a den that we will never use or go in. Any thoughts or suggestions would be so appreciated!!!
