Do you have KES 50,000 to spill on a decent 5 seater sofa set? No? Well, that cost can come down to less than half if you decided to be a genius and work with bricks and mortar. After all, who wants to keep moving their couches from one end to the other while cleaning?
One Anne Muthini decided to literally think out of the box for ideas of her sofa set. If photos shared by her on Kenya’s most popular construction group, Builders and Co-Creators, Anne decided to work with brick, mortar, some plastering and a final paint.

But is making seats permanent such a crazy idea? Absolutely not.
Both for external and internal use, amazing seat designs can be constructed from brick and mortar.
Below are some great seat designs in concrete to inspire your next project.
