What Should I Do with Awkward Space above Fridge?

What Should I Do with Awkward Space above Fridge?

Q: We are currently wrapping up our kitchen remodel and are in desperate need of some help with the space above the refrigerator. We opted not to put a cabinet in the space in the event we purchased a taller refrigerator, but now I am regretting that choice. There is a soffit that is smaller than the cabinets, so adding a cabinet now is not an option and we're left with a really awkward, unfinished-looking space. Please help!! The space is about 31"Wx22"Hx32"D.

P.S. We are not wine drinkers - everyone's first (and only) suggestion is to put a wine rack in the space, but this seems like a waste as we'd never use it.
