Get ready 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 watches their progress.
Better Homes & Gardens sponsors the One Room Challenge twice each year for the spring and fall. Twenty design influencers are welcomed as Featured Designers to overhaul a space more than eight weeks in their houses. On Wednesday, the designers show off their process while sharing inspiration, sources and professional advice. For the spring 2021 event, their interior design is finished by June 24. Louver Shop is proud to include 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 intuitive functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the perfect fit. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte collaborated directly with Susan in creating the perfect custom shutters. They have been developed specifically with Susan’s plan in mind to bring the space to life.
Louver Shop of Charlotte can help you in a similar fashion. Augment your interior design with our large variety of quality window treatments. Manufactured in the United States, premium materials complement beautiful design. Think about taking advantage of our free, in-home consultation.

Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s ideas are clear in her plan for her family’s game room—the space she’ll be redecorating 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 illustrates what creative professionals can accomplish 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 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 offer functional sophistication, making them a great match for these kinds of projects.
Susan values 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.”
