It’s time for the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a collection of quality home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve worked with a hand-selected designer to transform a room while a nationwide 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 invited as Featured Designers to refurbish a space across eight weeks in their homes. Every Wednesday, the designers document their process while offering inspiration, sources and professional advice. For the spring 2021 event, their interior design is finished by June 24. Louver Shop is proud to offer our window treatments for use in this year’s challenge.
Susan Hill Interior Design wanted new window treatments for her family’s gaming room to demonstrate both high-end design and smooth functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the perfect fit. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte partnered directly with Susan in creating the perfect 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 plans are succinct in her plan for her family’s game room—the room she’ll be redecorating over the course of 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 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 incorporating classic Louver Shop shutters with the PerfectView Louver Control System. By keeping the tilt bar from view, Susan’s horizontal lines stay smooth. Our custom plantation shutters provide functional style, 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.”
