Get ready for the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a team of top home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve participated with a hand-selected designer to update a room while a nationwide audience follows their progress.
Better Homes & Gardens sponsors the One Room Challenge twice each year for the spring and fall. Twenty design influencers are invited as Featured Designers to redesign a space over the course of eight weeks in their residences. Every Wednesday, the designers chart their process while sharing inspiration, sources and professional advice. For the spring 2021 event, their interior design is ready by June 24. Louver Shop is proud to provide our window treatments for use in this year’s challenge.
Susan Hill Interior Design wants 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 crafting the right custom shutters. They have been created particularly with Susan’s plan in mind to bring the area to life.

Meet Susan Hill, Our Featured Designer

Susan adopts a “function first” approach for her designs. A given space is established around her client's unique lifestyle and business goals. Practicality blends together with a robust perspective, influenced by her extensive treks around the world. Clients have the ability to incorporate their personality more closely into their home décor where the final products demonstrate depth and confidence.
Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s strengths are clear in her plan for her family’s game room—the space she’ll be redecorating 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 exemplifies what creative expertise 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 focuses on crisp horizontal lines while accents of charcoal attract 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 keeping the tilt bar from view, Susan’s horizontal lines remain smooth. Our custom plantation shutters deliver functional elegance, making them a perfect 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.”
