Age-friendly bathrooms are Tropical’s specialty
Bathroom designs and installations that emphasize safety, convenience, and easy maintenance are a specialty of award-winning remodeler Tropical Plumbing & Bath.
Tropical president Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association Remodeler of the Year who pioneered the introduction of walk-in bathtubs in Hawaii a decade ago, attributes the increasing concern with bathroom safety to both the aging of the baby boomer generation and the multi-generational living trend. These high-quality walk-in bathtubs from Tropical were chosen by Kuakini Health Care Systems for installations in senior living facilities.
“Walk-in bathtubs and showers generally include such components as head-rests, grab-bars, seats, and hand-held showers that can be placed in several positions and have spraying intensities ranging from gentle to massage,” Beeck, said. “The tub can be filled so the occupant can be immersed in the water, much like a furo. Barrier-free walk-in showers are increasingly popular and often replace standard tubs or old-fashioned showers. Anyone considering such bathroom upgrades can contact us for an appointment at the home, so we can assess the space and make recommendations.”
A “one-stop-shop,” Tropical Plumbing & Bath provides complete bathroom design packages and services what they sell; as general contractors they also provide all the necessary plumbing for the fixtures. The company has been the recipient of two Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii’s Best” First Place awards.
“Instead of piecemeal repairs and replacements, consider a complete bathroom remodel that will transform ‘the most neglected room in the house’ into a personal retreat, an in-home spa,” Beeck said.
