A bathroom remodel is a great way to start the new year and upgrade your family’s lifestyle. Perhaps it’s time to consider “designing for life,” a strong trend with the aging of the baby boomer generation.
“The bathroom has become the primary focus of aging-in-place residential remodeling,” said Charlie Beeck, president of Tropical Plumbing & Bath. “It’s no longer ‘the most neglected room in the house.’ 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. In addition to walk-in showers, which often replace old style stall showers, we are installing a lot of walk-in bathtubs. Many of our bathroom-remodeling projects have been for multi-generational living… a prevalent lifestyle in Hawaii.”
Tropical Plumbing & Bath is a “one stop shop” for design and construction of age-friendly bathrooms, as well as sales and installation of walk-in bathtubs and showers. As a licensed Hawaii general contractor, Tropical handles every phase of the installation, from plumbing to final finishes. The company has received two Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii’s Best” awards and was named “Remodeler of the Year” by the Building Industry Association of Hawaii.
“People today are very health conscious… they know the importance of maintaining good health at all ages,” Beeck commented. “Walk-in tubs and showers are seen as a good investment in their future. Grab bars, seats, easy-turn lever style faucets, and built-in or hand-held showers are standard features. There are also models that provide hydrotherapy. Our bathroom remodeling specialists are available to meet with homeowners to discuss their specific needs and provide custom designs together with cost estimates.”
