Space on top of refrigerator
You can use it for storage. Find (or make) some pretty bins, baskets, or boxes that match your decor. Or, you could add a basket of pretty greenery or silk flowers - just be prepared that they'll need dusting pretty often.
If you can't find a stock cabinet unit that fits, open shelving (or at least one shelf) might be nice. We DIY'd this where our microwave used to be, but you could do similar above your fridge.
That way things you put above it have a home when you inevitably have to move your fridge out to get something that's fallen behind it 😉
I have my long narrow boxes of foil wrap, plastic wrap, gallon size zip lock bags, quart bags, and sandwich bags on the top of the fridge. I know which one to grab as they are labeled on the ends so they are handy and out of the way and do not take up drawer space. Anything you want can to up there. Some people put their boxes of dry cereal on their fridge, others the bananas. Whatever you need that is handy but up out of the way works. My mom used to keep her large serving platters there.
Thanks, I would like to keep recipe books up there. They end up looking messy and hard to reach when they inevitably fall out if reach.
I have a basket, that I use for bags of snacks.
I have decor pieces on top of my fridge.
Mount some shelving above the refrigerator to permit air circulation, then place items infrequently used there, or use a step stool to retrieve them. Items can be placed in baskets, sealed containers, clear vases, etc.
I have a large shelf above the refrigerator where I keep large items. Very similar to what Oliva says but have to use baskets because some items are ugly.
