Vogue’s 73 Questions video with Kim Kardashian provided us with plenty of insight on the reality star and her family, like how Anna Wintour helped influence the decision about North West’s name and what Kim loves most about Kanye West. But the clip also gave fans new Kardashian mysteries to ponder, namely: What’s up with her sink?
While giving a tour of her “minimal monastery” abode on Instagram this week, Kim shared a look inside her master bath and at its intriguing fixtures. Her unique sink, which is basin-less and looks like it can overflow within seconds, quickly became a source of confusion for many. So, the beauty mogul decided to jump on Instagram Stories to give a more in-depth look at her home — with explanations.
First, Kim gave a closer peek at her bathroom’s patio, which features two outdoor chairs. The reality star also explained their “whole ceiling is a light box.”
She then showed off her glass shower and massive tub, which she said is large enough to fit all of her children: North, Saint, and Chicago. And from the looks of it, baby #4 will easily fit in there, too.
Now, back to the sink: Kim shared that it was crafted by Kanye, interior designer Axel Vervoordt, and architect Claudio Silvestrin.
“Eight versions of this prototype sink were made. It does actually slightly slope down, that you can kind of see. There’s a slit for the water," she said. The Calabasas mom even turned on the faucet so we could see the sink in action. "You can put it on as high pressure as you want and no backsplash will come up," she shared.
Another home feature that stood out was Kim’s unconventional light switch. Instead of using a typical switch, the house has three metal buttons to control the light with three settings: on, off, and dim. “There’s no box around it which I think is really cool and more visually appealing," Kim said.
Welp, that mystery is solved. How about a closet tour next, Kim?
