It’s time 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 partnered 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 brought in as Featured Designers to refurbish a space over the course of eight weeks in their homes. Every Wednesday, the designers chart their process while providing 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 design.
Susan Hill Interior Design needed new window treatments for her family’s gaming room to convey both attractive design and intuitive 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 crafting 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 plus construction. Examples of her work can be read about in many different publications.
Susan uses a “function first” approach for her designs. A given space is built around her client's one-of-a-kind lifestyle and business goals. Practicality meshes together with a deep perspective, influenced by her extensive treks across the globe. Clients have the chance 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 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 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 centers on crisp horizontal lines while pops 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 hiding the tilt bar from view, Susan’s horizontal lines remain smooth. Our custom plantation shutters provide functional sophistication, making them a perfect match for these styles of projects.
Susan appreciates 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.”
