Once considered “the most neglected room in the house,” the bathroom has become the focus of creative design and remodeling that can transform it into a luxurious, private oasis in the home.

“Today, with an ever-increasing variety of fixtures to choose from in a wide price range, and with the assistance of an experienced designer, homeowners are transforming outmoded bathrooms into havens of renewal and relaxation,” said Charlie Beeck, president of Tropical Plumbing and Bath. “Our $1,000 discount, plus free in-home consultation, makes the remodeling process more affordable. Also, as a ‘one-stop-shop,’ Tropical handles all phases of the project from design and budgeting to installation and the plumbing required by the new fixtures, which saves both time and dollars for the client.”


Tropical Plumbing and Bath designers are available for free consultations by appointment. They can provide a preliminary design plan and cost estimate, as well as examples of similar projects the company has completed and testimonials from satisfied clients. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss any special needs in the household, such as mobility issues. Age-friendly designs are one of Tropical’s special-ties.

Custom walk-in showers are the company’s most popular installations, often replacing old-fashioned stall showers and bathtubs, and are available in a variety of styles, including barrier-free and wheelchair-accessible models. Beeck introduced walk-in bathtubs in Hawaii more than a decade ago and has installed these fixtures in many multi-generational homes on Oahu, as well as in senior living facilities at Kuakini Medical Center. As walk-in bathtubs continue to gain in popularity, new styles, sizes and accessories have become available: grab bars, seats, headrests, easy-turn lever-style faucets and handheld sprays are standard features. There are also models that provide hydrotherapy to soothe tired muscles and relieve stiffness and stress. Tropical Plumbing and Bath is Hawaii’s leading resource for sales and installation of high quality walk-in bathtubs and showers, which are fully warrantied and made in the USA.

“The bathroom has become the primary focus of aging-in-place residential remodeling,” Beeck said. “Bathrooms in single-family homes and condos are now being transformed into comfortable, stylish, and safe environments. Small spaces are being redesigned to accommodate fixtures that represent the latest technology. People today are very health conscious — they know the importance of maintaining good health at all ages. Walk-in tubs and showers are seen as a good investment in their future.”


Tropical Plumbing and Bath is an award-winning company and a licensed contractor that’s been in business in Hawaii for more than 25 years. Beeck was named Remodeler of the Year by Building Industry Association of Hawaii, and his company has received two Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii’s Best” first-place awards.

The guys did an excellent job in the shortest amount of time — on time, and thoroughly cleaned up the debris. I was thrilled with the end result and almost want to pat myself on the back for choosing Tropical Plumbing and Bath! Their obvious expertise and quality of work is simply outstanding.”
