Age-friendly features for bathroom remodel
If your bathroom is in need of major remodeling, consider upgrading with age-friendly features. The first that would set the tone and help define the space for additional new components would be the replacement of an old-fashioned stall shower into a well-designed, fully equipped walk-in shower. You may also want to add a walk-in bathtub to make the space more appealing for “aging in place.” Tropical Plumbing and Bath is a specialist in age-friendly designs. Customized walk-in showers are their most popular installations. All are designed to the homeowner’s specifications and each is unique.
“The best way to start the remodeling process is with a free, in-home consultation with our bath remodeler who will assess the space and create a preliminary plan,” says company president Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association Remodeler of the Year. “Then, we will be able to project the extent of the desired alterations, which may include replacement of old, worn floor and counter tiles with new marble and travertine finishes and non-slip surfaces. The remodeling plan may also call for adjusting the height of toilets, sinks, counters and cabinets to levels specified by the homeowner and addition of grab-bars.”
Beeck points out that the many options and features that may be incorporated into a customized walk-in shower are extensive. These include a variety of sprays — overhead, rainshower and hand-held with intensities ranging from gentle to massage — seating, grab bars, and compartments for soaps and shampoos all designed for user convenience and safety. Extra-wide, barrier-free designs can be specified for wheelchair accessibility.

Tropical Plumbing and Bath remodeled my master bath and guest bath. The tub in the master bath was removed and now I have a beautiful walk-in shower. 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.
