Check out the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a group of premium home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve participated with a hand-selected designer to transform a room while a nationwide audience follows their progress.
Better Homes & Gardens sponsors the One Room Challenge twice each year during the spring and fall. Twenty design influencers are brought in as Featured Designers to refurbish a space across eight weeks in their houses. On Wednesday, the designers record their process while offering inspiration, sources and professional advice. For the spring 2021 event, their interior design is completed by June 24. Louver Shop is proud to offer our window treatments for use in this year’s design.
Susan Hill Interior Design needed updated window treatments for her family’s gaming room to convey both high-end design and seamless functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the right fit. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte partnered directly with Susan in crafting the right custom shutters. They have been created specifically with Susan’s talents in mind to bring the space to life.

Susan uses a “function first” approach for her designs. Each space is developed around her client's one-of-a-kind lifestyle and business goals. Practicality blends together with a robust perspective, influenced by her extensive trips around the world. Clients have the opportunity to bring their style more closely into their home décor where the final products demonstrate depth and confidence.
Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s talents are clear in her plan for her family’s game room—the space she’ll be revamping 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 quality 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 catch 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 masking the tilt bar from view, Susan’s horizontal lines are smooth. Our custom plantation shutters offer functional elegance, making them a great complement for these kinds 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.”
