Custom Louver Shop Shutters Are the Perfect Fit for This One Room Challenge Gaming Area

The spring 2021 One Room Challenge™ (sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens) is in full swing, with designers making significant progress on their spaces. Louver Shop recently finished 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 explained.

A Custom Fit, Every Time

Louver Shop partners with every customer for the right fit for their room and to make their vision real. And Susan’s room was no exception. One of the major design principles for her space was clean lines. These were even more so key in the room’s leading highlight, the TV wall. Susan wanted to carry this component into her window treatments, making plantation shutters with a 3½” louver—one of the many options available—a perfect fit.

In order to reach that sleek look, 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 built shutters for Susan that came without a hinge, instead installing 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.”

Install Custom Shutters

The Right Color, The Right Design

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

Add Custom Shutters to Your Room

“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.”
