It’s time for the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a roster of top home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve participated with a hand-selected designer to revitalize a room while a national audience watches their progress.
Better Homes & Gardens sponsors the One Room Challenge twice each year for the spring and fall. Twenty design influencers are brought in as Featured Designers to redesign a space across eight weeks in their houses. On Wednesday, the designers display 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 offer our window treatments for use in this year’s challenge.
Susan Hill Interior Design needed updated window treatments for her family’s gaming room to deliver both beautiful design and seamless functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the perfect choice. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte partnered directly with Susan in creating the ideal custom shutters. They have been created particularly with Susan’s plan in mind to bring the room to life.

Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s talents are clear in her plan for her family’s game room—the room she’ll be revamping throughout 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 do 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 revolves around crisp horizontal lines while bursts of charcoal draw the eye (a specific request from Susan’s daughter) in the trim, outlet covers and a few furniture pieces. Susan will be including classic Louver Shop shutters with the PerfectView Louver Control System. By hiding the tilt bar from view, Susan’s horizontal lines stay smooth. Our custom plantation shutters provide functional sophistication, making them a perfect fit for these styles 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.”
