It’s time for the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a collection of top home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve worked with a hand-selected designer to revitalize a room while a nationwide audience keeps up with their progress.
Better Homes & Gardens sponsors the One Room Challenge twice each year for the spring and fall. Twenty design influencers are welcomed as Featured Designers to overhaul a space across eight weeks in their houses. Every Wednesday, the designers record 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 provide our window treatments for use in this year’s challenge.
Susan Hill Interior Design needs quality window treatments for her family’s gaming room to demonstrate both beautiful design and intuitive functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the perfect pick. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte partnered directly with Susan in crafting the right custom shutters. They have been created especially with Susan’s talents in mind to bring the space to life.

Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s talents are succinct in her plan for her family’s game room—the area 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 illustrates what creative professionals 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 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 incorporating 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 style, making them a perfect complement for these kinds 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.”
