Finishing 2022 on a high!

Published on 21 December, 2022

It’s been a bright year for Beyond as we received more external recognition of our stellar growth. We’ve risen 107 places to number 101 in the 2022 Solent 250 list published recently, and were earlier this year placed in the inaugural FEBE Growth 100 list for entrepreneurial businesses.

It’s been a brilliant year for us on the awards front and we’re delighted to be recognised alongside some fantastic local household names such as Farrow & Ball and Hobbycraft in the Solent 250 and brands such as Huel and Passenger in the FEBE Growth 100 list”, said Founder and CEO, Elliot Lees-Bell.

Our three retail websites, Drench, Tap Warehouse and Only Radiators continue to grow and become more well-known to the nation’s renovators, but it’s also hugely rewarding for us to be noted as a company that is doing things right on many levels.”

Our mission is to help create well-designed homes that look great, feel special, and have a positive impact on people's everyday lives. Drench, in particular, aims to meet the needs of customers who are design-curious but equality want affordable luxury in their bathrooms – it fills a cooler, less-mainstream niche where the products have already been curated so that everything on offer is of high quality and beautifully designed, whatever the budget.

Our top-notch 3D designs look just like photographs and our super-popular free consultation service helps customers navigate the technical niggles that can befall bathroom renovation projects.

Elliot Lees-Bell said, “According to FEBE, there are 4.2m private companies in the UK, and just 1% of 45,000 of these are considered ‘high growth’. To have made it onto the Growth 100 list is simply fantastic. We’re a detail-obsessed, hard-working and home-loving team and our drive to make bathrooms beautiful yet affordable is never-ending!
