Check out the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a group of premium home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve partnered with a hand-selected designer to transform a room while a wide audience keeps up with 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 renovate a space more than eight weeks in their residences. On Wednesday, the designers record their process while providing inspiration, sources and professional advice. For the spring 2021 event, their interior design is ready by June 24. Louver Shop is proud to include our window treatments for use in this year’s challenge.
Susan Hill Interior Design wanted quality window treatments for her family’s gaming room to convey both beautiful design and smooth functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the ideal choice. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte worked directly with Susan in creating the perfect custom shutters. They have been created particularly with Susan’s talents in mind to bring the space to life.

Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s strengths are clear in her plan for her family’s game room—the room she’ll be transforming during 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 exemplifies what creative talent can accomplish with top 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 pops of charcoal catch 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 deliver functional sophistication, making them a great match for these kinds 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.”
