Get ready for the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a group of top home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve worked with a hand-selected designer to revitalize a room while a national audience watches 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 refurbish a space across eight weeks in their homes. Every Wednesday, the designers record their process while providing inspiration, sources and professional advice. For the spring 2021 event, their interior design is ready by June 24. Louver Shop is proud to include our window treatments for use in this year’s design.
Susan Hill Interior Design needed new window treatments for her family’s gaming room to convey both attractive design and seamless functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the right pick. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte collaborated directly with Susan in building the right custom shutters. They have been made specifically with Susan’s design in mind to bring the room to life.

Meet Susan Hill, Our Featured Designer
Susan Hill is the CEO and Principal Designer of Susan Hill Interior Design. She is an award-winning licensed professional interior designer specializing in architectural and interior design in addition to construction. Examples of her work can be read about in many different publications.
Susan uses a “function first” approach for her designs. Each space is built around her client's one-of-a-kind lifestyle and business goals. Practicality meshes together with a bold perspective, influenced by her extensive treks across the globe. Clients have the ability to incorporate themselves more closely into their home décor where the final products show off depth and confidence.
Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s ideas are clear in her plan for her family’s game room—the area she’ll be revamping 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 do 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 focuses on 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 incorporating classic Louver Shop shutters with the PerfectView Louver Control System. By hiding the tilt bar from view, Susan’s horizontal lines remain smooth. Our custom plantation shutters deliver functional sophistication, making them a good match for these styles 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.”
