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 participated with a hand-selected designer to update a room while a wide audience follows their progress.
Better Homes & Gardens sponsors the One Room Challenge twice each year during the spring and fall. Twenty design influencers are brought in as Featured Designers to refurbish a space over the course of eight weeks in their homes. Every Wednesday, the designers chart 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 include our window treatments for use in this year’s contest.
Susan Hill Interior Design needed updated window treatments for her family’s gaming room to convey both attractive design and smooth functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the right choice. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte collaborated directly with Susan in creating the perfect custom shutters. They have been created specifically 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 area she’ll be revamping 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 expertise can build 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 focuses on crisp horizontal lines while bursts 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 keeping the tilt bar from view, Susan’s horizontal lines are smooth. Our custom plantation shutters provide functional sophistication, making them a perfect 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.”
