Ideas for the top of my fridge storage

by Caryene
I want to store things on top of my fridge. I want the things enclosed so they don't get greasy. Can be some sort of nice looking containers or something similar to a cabinet with doors. Needs to be inexpensive. Any ideas for me? Thanks
This is the space . I think it is wasted space and am looking for ideas.

    Were remodeling our kitchen and since we never use our over the fridge cabinets (Could barely open because of new bigger fridge) I built a wine rack / bookshelf - Turned out great

    First I covered the top of the frig - you can use a kitchen towel, etc. Then I used an appropriate sized picnic basket to hold items I infrequently use. The top keeps the items from becoming dusty. A decorative towel can be draped over the entire basket for eye-appeal -- or even a bouquet of "wild" flowers as if you're ready for a picnic.

    I keep large clear jars with not frequently used items (like canisters), in graduated sizes.

    I seen a post recently where someone glued fabric to a tote to dress it up and it looked great. you could do the same with wall paper and smaller plastic bins for the top of your fridge.

    I use the top of my fridge to store cookbooks, standing up with a nice book end and a plant

    I also use a picnic basket, with treats and chips for the grandkids (which are then not out in plain sight) (the treats and chips, not the grandkids!)

    Add a cabinet above the frig to hold vases, pitchers, etc. - things you use only occasionally. It should still leave enough room between the top of the frig and bottom of the cabinet to place large items like bread baskets, platters, serving trays to put on top of the frig.

    I place a large rectangular shallow basket that is almost the size of the circumference of the refrigerator and store boxes of crackers, bags of chips and doggie treats.

    Add a shelf above the frig there for storing small appliances and specialty pans i.e...mixer, toaster, electric pan, wok etc.

    All good ideas. While at it, you might want to hem a large rectangle of fabric that coordinates with your kitchen to place atop the frig. Then just pull it off once in a while to wash--eliminates that difficult cleaning of the top of the frig. Love to see what you finally settle on for storage.
