Get ready 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 worked with a hand-selected designer to update a room while a national 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 brought in as Featured Designers to refurbish a space more than eight weeks in their houses. Each Wednesday, the designers document their process while offering 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 new window treatments for her family’s gaming room to convey both attractive design and intuitive functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the perfect choice. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte worked directly with Susan in crafting the perfect custom shutters. They have been created particularly with Susan’s design in mind to bring the room to life.

Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s plans are clear in her plan for her family’s game room—the area 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 exemplifies 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 revolves around crisp horizontal lines while pops 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 using 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 match 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.”
