SO do you want to visit Kim Kardashian at her home? Be prepared to follow some strict rules.
The reality star, who fought hard to score sole ownership of the $60 million Los Angeles mansion she once shared with ex Kanye West, is making friends, family and visitors honor a specific set of guidelines before entering and while inside.
Many of the rules only have to deal with keeping the place clean.
The mega mansion, which she and Ye bought in 2013 for just $20 million, underwent four years of extravagant renovations, ultimately reflecting Kim’s love of colors and neutral tones.
Last year, Kim took to Instagram to share a photo of her living room, which featured a white carpet, three white chairs, a white coffee table, a white painting, an empty white fireplace, and white walls.
Kim, 41, gushed that the space was her “favourite room in my house”, but anyone entering the room had better be careful.
And that rule is particularly relevant to her four young children, who are forbidden from playing near the white space.
Kim and Kanye share daughters North, 9, and Chicago, 4, and sons Saint, 6, and Salm, 3.
In a post on her former blog, she shared: “Our home decoration taste tends to be very minimal and modern but the children’s playroom is the one room in the house where I let them run wild wild
“That’s where all the markers, paints and colors are… By the time they’re done there, they don’t want to take a pen to our white furniture, lol!”

Take a look at some of Kim’s other strict house rules.
One original rule that seemed to be broken was Kim’s ban on any photos of the place at all.
Even her own reality crew were banned from showing the inside of their home.
That is, until Kanye himself broke that rule, sharing three photos of the house shortly after the renovations were complete.
Kim immediately fired back at her then-husband, berating him for breaking rule #1.
“Ummm baby. We had a rule not to show our home on social media!” she tweeted. “Soooo can we now allow KUWTK to be filmed at home?”
He added a laughing crying emoji.
Since then, the star has let cameras click on several occasions, both inside and outside her home.
NO PHONES AT DINNER
Kim may never have met a selfie she didn’t like, but when it comes to family dinner, all phones must go away.
During a panel at Beautycon 2018, the mother of four shared a piece of advice she was once given: “If you get a phone call … and you’re all eating dinner together, never pick up and leave and take the call or take the call. at the table because [if you do] you’re showing your kids that this phone call is more important than them.”
Kim admitted that like when she was growing up, her children had specific social hours.
“I remember growing up, [with] our home phone, I had rules,” he explained. “There were phone hours. And so should mobile phone hours. You should never sleep by your phone.”
The busy businesswoman enforces this rule by insisting that her children leave their phones in the kitchen at night, with the promise that the protective parent will put it back in the morning after they share family breakfast.
NO LOST SECRETS
Before getting cozy in Kim’s home, guests are said to first have to sign a non-disclosure agreement, promising to keep their conversations confidential.
“Kim isn’t very popular with a lot of the moms of her kids’ friends, because she’s so paranoid about even having a basic conversation with them,” a source previously told RadarOnline.com.
A typical NDA threatens retaliation or even legal action if confidential information is somehow released or leaked.
It is not entirely clear what is on Kim’s documents.
Following Kim’s terrifying robbery at gunpoint in Paris, the fashion pioneer established a new rule for her home life: no fancy or expensive jewelry out in the open.
Kim reportedly implemented the policy at the Hidden Hills home because she doesn’t want it to be a target for thieves.
According to TMZ at the time: “The very few pieces of jewelery that Kim still owns are stored elsewhere – under constant supervision – with very elaborate security measures to get to them.”
In October 2016, two men attacked her hotel room in Paris, where she was alone.
After they took her $8 million engagement ring, the thieves abducted Kim, who was bound, gagged and thrown into a bathroom.
In the end, 12 people were arrested for conspiring to rob Kim.
