It's about time Kim Kardashian and Kanye West started renovating their $11 million Bel-Air mansion! We're just wondering why they got such a late start, because he couple are completely gutting the pad, and it's going to be several more months before they can move in...
Apparently there were issues with the electricity, water and heating in the house and workers had to to completely rewire the place, but Kimye are also adding a slew of luxury upgrades to the 10,000-square-foot pad and they are reportedly looking to build an additional 4,000 square feet of living space!
The couple, who welcomed baby North West less than two months ago, reportedly shelled out over $750,000 on four gold-plated toilets, nearly $1 million on Electrolux appliances, and they even ordered a Swarovski-encrusted fridge and freezer! And that's not all! The Daily Mail reports that Kimye spent over $1 million on six special edition luxury beds that are "covered in the same decadent gold silk used to create iconic Hermes ties, equating to some 1,600 miles of thread in total." A source told The Sun, "They expect the interior to cost twice as much as the property. They’re spending more than a million on a security system alone."
The couple's home will include a hair and makeup salon, a bowling alley, both indoor and outdoor pools, a basketball court, a movie theater and a custom gym.
So where will they be living in the meantime? We thought they were living with her mom Kris, but Radar reports that Kimye will be moving in to an 8,000-square-foot rental.
