Custom Louver Shop Shutters Are the Perfect Fit for This One Room Challenge Gaming Space

The spring 2021 One Room Challenge™ (sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens) is in full swing, with designers making considerable progress on their rooms. Louver Shop recently finished the shutter installation for Susan Hill, the CEO and principal designer of Susan Hill Interior Design, with the assistance of Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte.

“What I really wanted was to be able to have privacy, to have really beautiful window coverings. But I didn’t want them to take away from the main accent, which is the TV wall,” Susan mentioned.

A Custom Fit, Every Time

Louver Shop collaborates with every customer for the right match for their room and to bring their vision to life. And Susan’s area was no exception. One of the key design principles for her space was horizontal lines. These were particularly important in the space’s chief feature, the TV wall. Susan wanted to transport this detail into her window treatments, making plantation shutters with a 3½” louver—one of the many choices available—a perfect fit.

In order to reach that sleek style, she selected shutters without a divider bar and made the most of the PerfectView Louver Control System, which conceals the tilt bar from view. We took that a step further and built shutters for Susan that were hinge-free, instead installing them on magnets and clips.

“This makes it really easy for me to get them off if I want to open the bottom window sash,” Susan said. “If we had used a hinge color, there would’ve been some other element introduced in the room, and I’m really trying to keep the room simple and clean.”

The Right Color, The Right Design

As a part of Susan’s design, she desired the shutters to correspond seamlessly with the room colors. So Louver Shop custom-matched them with Susan’s Rudrakahsa Beads wall color. Craig suggested selecting wood plantation shutters as wood is one of the best possibilities for really bringing bold stain colors to life.

“To put it in a nutshell, everything we make is 100% custom,” Craig explained. “Susan came to us. She wanted a custom color. She wanted no hinges. She wanted no tilt rod. She wanted a very clean look, and we could do all that for her to get the look she was exactly going for in this room.”
