With a desire to create the perfect living environment, our technical design approach and up to date product knowledge creates value to each one of our customers. LTD.guru was built on the foundation of closely working with clients through the entire build process to ensure all is being done each and every day to keep the integrity of your home’s design. LTD.GURU is built on a “Project” based business model; regardless of what stage you are at we are flexible to jump in wherever needed - due to the fact the industry is ever changing and extremely technical.

Lighting Design Services

Our clients expectations of the “perfect living environment” are always quite different so listening to the design team is step one. The perfect lighting environment can only be accomplished by properly using all of the lighting categories through our layering process. Layers of light help us create all of the different looks and functions desired in today’s household.

Specify the right products

The new world of LED lighting is ever changing and it’s our job to stay ahead of the curve and know where to go for the best functional and decorative fixtures in each of the categories. Having access to all of the manufacturers allows us to pick and choose accordingly which creates real value to our customers.

Provide the B.O.M.

We have access to product line to hundreds of lighting and hardware manufacturers so once the functional lighting specification is built we can provide the Bill Of Materials which will then allow us to stay engaged and manage the installation process to ensure the integrity of our design is met when all is said and done.

Project Oversight

Keeping the integrity of your lighting design takes time and oversight at the job site level. Assisting in the oversight of the electrical installation makes for a better end result. You can purchase products almost anywhere these days but the professional expertise and product know-how that comes with our products is why we started LTD.Guru.

What We do

Taylor St. Clair and his team of lighting designers have been providing design and management for residential and commercial lighting projects across the USA for over 25 years’. LTD was built on the foundation of working closely with builders, designers, architects and homeowners to create innovative, practical and economically viable lighting solutions. We understand the role of lighting in architecture and interior design and rely on a more professional and proactive approach to managing lighting projects.

DESIGN

Good lighting doesn’t just happen, it is designed. Lighting design is both functional and aesthetic. LTD’s lighting designers are uniquely qualified to bridge the gap between the technical details and aesthetic considerations while remaining independent from manufacture influence. They understand the role of lighting in architecture and interior design and rely on their extensive knowledge of lighting equipment and control systems to ensure high quality design’s in any environment.


WHY HIRE A LIGHTING DESIGNER?


Why should an architect or homeowner pay for lighting design services when it can be done in house or by a salesperson at no additional "cost"? The fee that a lighting designer charges is difficult to see when the extent and value of the services are not recognized. But those owners and architects who have benefited from independent, skillful lighting design realize that there are both short- and long-term paybacks that far outweigh a fee. Lighting designers can be a unique, value-added resource. In many instances, a lighting designer will actually reduce the project construction and/or operations costs.
