Check out 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 follows their progress.
Better Homes & Gardens sponsors the One Room Challenge twice each year around the spring and fall. Twenty design influencers are invited as Featured Designers to refurbish a space across eight weeks in their residences. Every Wednesday, the designers chart their process while sharing 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 contest.
Susan Hill Interior Design wanted updated window treatments for her family’s gaming room to display both beautiful design and smooth functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the ideal pick. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte worked directly with Susan in crafting the perfect custom shutters. They have been created particularly with Susan’s design in mind to bring the space to life.

Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s plans are clear in her plan for her family’s game room—the area 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 demonstrates what creative professionals can do 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 centers on crisp horizontal lines while bursts 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 using 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 provide functional style, making them a good complement for these types 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.”
