Brandon Kuehler has been in the Architectural and Landscape Lighting business for over 20 years. He started his love (more of an obsession) with lighting when he was in high school at James E. Taylor High School in Katy, TX. He started out with a company hanging Christmas lights for homeowners all over the Houston area, which led him into the outdoor lighting space when that same company asked him to join the “other” lighting side.

In 2000, Brandon went off to college at Texas Tech University in Lubbock to study Business Management. While there Brandon still worked on lighting in Lubbock and back home during breaks, but it was a “job”, he had a career already lined up with his Grandfathers company in San Antonio upon graduation. Well… things did not turn out as planned – Brandon graduated from Texas Tech in 2004 during the first economic downturn and 2 weeks before his graduation the job he had for 4 years was gone and he had to come up with a new game plan.

Light It Right was Born!

Out of a need to a job Brandon went back to a passion he had developed in high school and founded Light It Right. Out of his bedroom at his parents house Brandon designed and installed lighting systems for friends and neighbors in the Katy area. Once people saw the great designs, quality workmanship, and professionalism Brandon provided word spread and he was working all over Houston. All of this with just himself and help from his Dad and occasion a brother, when home.

That was over 14 years ago – what is now a 8 person team, award winning, certified low voltage installation and design company that is State wide came out of his parents bedroom and from a desire to make homes beautiful with lighting.

This dedication has benefited Brandon in developing relationships with some of the most revered Landscape Architects and Home Builders in the Houston area as the go to lighting guy. HIs passion for giving homeowners the dream they picture of their home drives him to push the envelope and strive to make light perform in ways others can’t or would never image doing.

It is incredibly important to keep integrity in the lighting business, don’t be cheap, do things right the first time with the right materials and installed with the highest standards” – Brandon Kuehler, CLVLT, COLD
