    I have cabinets over my fridge that extend from the main cabinets. It's nice to have them for things that you don't use that often, but I have to get on a stool and reach over the fridge. There is about 4" of clearance above the top of my fridge to the bottom of the cabinets.

    Crates would be cute. You could use baskets also, even those storage drawers with the handles in front that would be easy to access then.

    No, the clearance is not needed for ventilation. If your fridge is putting out more heat than will be comfortable, then you have a setting or fridge thermostat problem. One tip: leave enough space above the fridge in case you update someday to a taller model. Best wishes 😇

    Maybe shelves would help you.
