A host of Ghanaians have reacted to a trend where homes and guest houses are now adopting, the construction of concrete beds.
The concrete beds come in a rectangle shape which is fitted at the preferred spot in a room. Some of these beds are covered in tiles with others smoothen with cement to give it a perfect finish.
