    If you mean the spce left after a medicine cabinet is removed, depending on if there is a space cut out on the wall or not, how about a nice mirror?

    I put a beautiful mirror over the spot that had a recessed medicine cabinet.

    We removed the medicine cabinet in our bathroom and simply put a piece of dry wall over the space, cut to fit, then taped and smoothed out.

    It depends if it is wall hung or it is recessed into an area (usually between studs). You can put a mirror over the area to cover the hole thus making a nice place to hide things behind the mirror. If there are not "blocks" top and bottom (usually made of 2 x 4/s) you would have to build a frame to fill the hole before hanging the mirror. Build a frame and shelves and inset it into the area where the old inset cabinet resided. You can put a board on the wall and hooks on the board to hang objects (towels, etc.). If I knew more about the space, it's location, size and whether the wall would need to be refinished I might have some other ideas.

    If it is the kind that sat inside the wall, you can tile the space and make a small decorative cubby or use it for storage....

    First of all, destroy all old med. Tear off the labels, and cut them up in small pieces, so no one can use them. You don't want anyone to get ill on your med. Then, watch your adds, for some places save these bottles, for older folks to make things, with them, or a mechanic can use these in his garage. This is very handy to him. Best wishes, J.
