Check out the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a team of quality home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve participated with a hand-selected designer to transform 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 invited as Featured Designers to redesign a space over the course of eight weeks in their homes. Each Wednesday, the designers record 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 provide our window treatments for use in this year’s challenge.
Susan Hill Interior Design needed new 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 perfect pick. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte collaborated directly with Susan in building the right custom shutters. They have been made especially with Susan’s design in mind to bring the area to life.

Clients have the chance to incorporate themselves more closely into their home décor where the final products demonstrate depth and confidence.
Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s talents are clear 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 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 centers on 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 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 elegance, making them a great complement for these styles of projects.
Susan appreciates 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.”
