Louver Shop Joins the Spring 2021 One Room Challenge

Get ready for the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a collection of top home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve partnered with a hand-selected designer to revitalize a room while a nationwide 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 overhaul a space more than eight weeks in their homes. On Wednesday, the designers display their process while offering inspiration, sources and professional advice. For the spring 2021 event, their interior design is completed by June 24. Louver Shop is proud to provide our window treatments for use in this year’s design.

Susan Hill Interior Design wanted updated window treatments for her family’s gaming room to display 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 partnered directly with Susan in building the right custom shutters. They have been developed specifically with Susan’s vision in mind to bring the room to life.

Louver Shop of Pittsburgh can help you in a similar way. Upgrade your interior design with our wide variety of quality window treatments.

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 found in many different publications.

Susan relies on 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 deep perspective, influenced by her extensive treks around the world. Clients have the chance to bring 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 succinct in her plan for her family’s game room—the space 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 demonstrates what creative design 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 revolves around 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 incorporating classic Louver Shop shutters with the PerfectView Louver Control System. By masking the tilt bar from view, Susan’s horizontal lines remain smooth. Our custom plantation shutters deliver functional sophistication, making them a perfect fit for these styles 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.”
