Check out the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a roster of premium home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve partnered with a hand-selected designer to update a room while a nationwide audience keeps up with their progress.
Better Homes & Gardens sponsors the One Room Challenge twice each year during the spring and fall. Twenty design influencers are welcomed as Featured Designers to refurbish a space more than eight weeks in their houses. Each Wednesday, the designers document 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 offer our window treatments for use in this year’s event.
Susan Hill Interior Design needed quality window treatments for her family’s gaming room to deliver both beautiful design and smooth functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the perfect pick. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte worked directly with Susan in building the right custom shutters. They have been created specifically with Susan’s plan in mind to bring the area 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 seen 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 bold perspective, influenced by her extensive treks internationally. Clients have the ability to incorporate their personality more closely into their home décor where the final products show off depth and confidence.
Winning the One Room Challenge
Susan’s plans are succinct in her plan for her family’s game room—the space she’ll be revamping 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 demonstrates what creative talent can do 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 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 including classic Louver Shop shutters with the PerfectView Louver Control System. By keeping the tilt bar from view, Susan’s horizontal lines are smooth. Our custom plantation shutters provide functional sophistication, making them a perfect fit for these kinds 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.”
