Check out the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a group of top home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve partnered with a hand-selected designer to update a room while a wide audience keeps up with their progress.
Better Homes & Gardens sponsors the One Room Challenge twice each year during the spring and fall. Twenty design influencers are invited as Featured Designers to redesign a space across eight weeks in their homes. On Wednesday, the designers chart their process while providing inspiration, sources and professional advice. For the spring 2021 event, their interior design is completed by June 24. Louver Shop is proud to include our window treatments for use in this year’s challenge.
Susan Hill Interior Design wants new window treatments for her family’s gaming room to demonstrate both attractive design and seamless functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the right pick. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte partnered directly with Susan in building the right custom shutters. They have been made particularly with Susan’s design in mind to bring the room to life.

Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s talents are clear in her plan for her family’s game room—the area she’ll be transforming throughout the One Room Challenge.
“When Better Homes & Gardens asked me to be a featured designer, my kids suggested right away that I change our playroom over to a gaming room,” Susan said. “I was excited when I saw Louver Shop was a sponsor, because shutters are the perfect way to be able to manage privacy and light.”
This partnership demonstrates what creative talent can accomplish with premium sources. “My firm specializes in architectural design and construction,” Susan explained. “The majority of what we do is try to create a classic, clean foundation. We consider privacy treatments to be part of that.”
The design itself revolves around crisp horizontal lines while accents of charcoal attract the eye (a specific request from Susan’s daughter) in the trim, outlet covers and a few furniture pieces. Susan will be incorporating classic Louver Shop shutters with the PerfectView Louver Control System. By hiding the tilt bar from view, Susan’s horizontal lines stay smooth. Our custom plantation shutters deliver functional style, making them a good complement for these kinds of projects.
Susan works well with the simplicity. “I tend to follow the design principles that the Romans and Greeks executed so well—especially repetition. If I’ve got horizontal lines in a room, I prefer for those to be continuous so I can carry them throughout the room. Without the divider and vertical rod in the shutters, I’ll be able to have very clean lines while controlling the light in the room.”
