The Shutter and Shade Connection
Southwest Florida
Window treatments and interior plantation shutters with one-stop custom design…


Craig and Sue Gorky are a creative, entrepreneurial couple. Craig worked in industrial sales, dabbled in photography and could design just about anything for the home. Sue, an educator, was always thinking outside the box to ensure students received an exemplary educational experience and she also had a flair for decorating. For 16 years they owned New England Blinds, a shop-at-home custom design window treatment company serving Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. 

The Shutter and Shade Connection of Estero, Florida was launched in 2016 offering custom window treatment products by Alta and Norman Window Fashions. Interior plantation shutters, wood blinds, top-down bottom up honeycomb shades, woven woods and vertiglide sliding door window coverings are the hottest sellers. With hundreds of styles and colors to choose from, The Shutter and Shade Connection window treatments transcend the ordinary. They are distinctive, classic and long-lasting. 


Craig often talks about a common misconception that most buyers have. People believe it will be more expensive to work with a custom design company than going to the box stores like, Lowe's and Home Depot. In fact, that is not true! The Shutter and Shade Connection, a family owned business, has a low overhead with the same buying power as the retail stores. The low overhead allows them to pass savings on to their customers. 


The key to success is customer service and top quality products that carry great warranties. The Shutter and Shade Connection and New England Blinds are leaders in the window treatment industry.

You'll be surprised at the exciting difference that these beautiful products will make in your home.
