Kim Kardashian is the latest celebrity to expertly walk backward through her house while answering 73 questions for Vogue, with the reality star showing off her beautiful family and her …big house. Like, it’s beautiful, we guess, but it’s also cold and a bit barren right? Kinda looks like the place where sunshine and rainbows and happiness go to die, right? Just us? One of the biggest takeaways from the interview is that Kim is studying to become a lawyer. At least, that should have been the biggest takeaway. But mostly, we all wanted to know how her sink works.
Traveling the world can often result in some confusion when it comes to bathrooms, with buttons on toilets and sensors on sinks looking very different outside of North America. But Kardashian and husband Kanye West live in California, so we should be able to figure out how their plumbing works.
Nope, we got nothing. There’s no sink, no basin, no slight dip that would explain where the water flows. Does rich-people-water evaporate when it hits the air? Do the Wests have bathroom attendants that stand with their hands cupped, ready to catch any excess water? Has the family been genetically modified to be able to survive without water (because we could totally see that happening with the Wests)?
After being asked on social media repeatedly by fans to explain the mysteries of the family sink, Kim posted a tour on her Instagram Stories. In case you were wondering, eight prototypes of the sink were made, and it was designed by Kanye along with interior designer Axel Vervoordt and architect Claudio Silvestrin. Built three feet away from the mirror, because you know Kim isn’t doing her makeup in there, the sink has a slight slope and a small slit that catches water.

Well, there’s one mystery solved. Of course, there’s still the second mystery.
The problems I have with Kim Ks sinks are… toothbrushes?? Hand wash?? Soap?? Where are these basic bathroom commodities 🤔

Lost for words at Kim Kardashian’s bathroom on her Insta. Where are the toothbrushes? I couldn’t even see cupboards, where are the hundreds of bottles of half used shampoo?

Maybe the couple put away all their products for the Vogue shoot. Or maybe this is their show house and they have a second home that has popcorn ceilings and shag carpeting and accent walls with colours that are way too bright, and it’s warm and inviting. You know how some families have a nice sitting room that no one is allowed in? Maybe the Wests have the house version of that.
Either way, it’s a big bathroom.
Why am I not surprised that Kim K’s bathroom is bigger than my whole apartment
