It’s time for the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a roster of quality home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve worked with a hand-selected designer to revamp a room while a nationwide audience watches their progress.
Better Homes & Gardens sponsors the One Room Challenge twice each year around the spring and fall. Twenty design influencers are welcomed as Featured Designers to redesign a space more than eight weeks in their homes. On Wednesday, the designers display their process while offering inspiration, sources and professional advice. For the spring 2021 event, their interior design is ready by June 24. Louver Shop is proud to offer our window treatments for use in this year’s event.
Susan Hill Interior Design needed quality window treatments for her family’s gaming room to display both high-end design and seamless functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the ideal fit. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte collaborated directly with Susan in crafting the perfect custom shutters. They have been developed especially with Susan’s plan in mind to bring the room to life.

Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s plans are detailed in her plan for her family’s game room—the space she’ll be redecorating over the course of 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 illustrates what creative talent can accomplish with quality 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 focuses on crisp horizontal lines while pops 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 masking the tilt bar from view, Susan’s horizontal lines remain smooth. Our custom plantation shutters deliver functional sophistication, making them a good complement for these styles of projects.
Susan values 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.”
