Custom Louver Shop Shutters Are the Right Solution for This One Room Challenge Gaming Space

The spring 2021 One Room Challenge™ (sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens) is in progress, with designers making significant progress on their areas. Louver Shop recently completed 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 explained.

A Custom Fit, Every Time

Louver Shop collaborates with every customer for the ideal fit for their home and to make their vision a reality. And Susan’s space was no exception. One of the major design principles for her space was horizontal lines. These were especially important in the room’s leading accent, the TV wall. Susan wanted to bring this component into her window treatments, making plantation shutters with a 3½” louver—one of the many options available—an ideal fit.

In order to reach that clean look, she chose 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 made shutters for Susan that came without a hinge, 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.”

Install Custom Shutters

The Right Color, The Right Design

As a part of Susan’s design, she wanted the shutters to match seamlessly with the room colors. So Louver Shop custom-matched them with Susan’s Rudrakahsa Beads wall color. Craig recommended selecting wood plantation shutters as wood is one of the ideal solutions for really bringing dark stain colors to life.
