Custom Louver Shop Shutters Are the Ideal Match for This One Room Challenge Gaming Space

The spring 2021 One Room Challenge™ (sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens) is in full swing, with designers making significant progress on their rooms. Louver Shop recently did the shutter installation for Susan Hill, the CEO and principal designer of Susan Hill Interior Design, with the support of Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte.

“What I really wanted was to be able to have privacy, to have really beautiful window coverings. But I didn’t want them to take away from the main accent, which is the TV wall,” Susan said.

A Custom Fit, Every Time

Louver Shop works with every customer for the perfect fit for their needs and to make their vision a reality. And Susan’s room was no exception. One of the major design principles for her room was crisp lines. These were particularly key in the room’s primary feature, the TV wall. Susan wanted to transport this element into her window treatments, making plantation shutters with a 3½” louver—one of the many choices available—a perfect fit.

In order to get that clean style, she used shutters without a divider bar and took advantage of the PerfectView Louver Control System, which conceals the tilt bar from view. We took that a step further and made shutters for Susan that didn’t have a hinge, instead placing them on magnets and clips.

“This makes it really easy for me to get them off if I want to open the bottom window sash,” Susan said. “If we had used a hinge color, there would’ve been some other element introduced in the room, and I’m really trying to keep the room simple and clean.”

The Right Color, The Right Design

As a part of Susan’s design, she was looking for the shutters to blend seamlessly with the room colors. So Louver Shop custom-matched them with Susan’s Rudrakahsa Beads wall color. Craig suggested using wood plantation shutters as wood is one of the top possibilities for really bringing dark stain colors to life.

The One Room Challenge will be ongoing through the end of June. Be sure to keep up with the 20 design influencers who have been chosen to do the challenge as featured designers. They go over their latest updates every Wednesday, recording their process and offering advice.

“To put it in a nutshell, everything we make is 100% custom,” Craig explained. “Susan came to us. She wanted a custom color. She wanted no hinges. She wanted no tilt rod. She wanted a very clean look, and we could do all that for her to get the look she was exactly going for in this room.”
