Do you keep anything up there? If so, what and how does it look?
otherwise, it's usually pretty clear. We have a lot of kitchen cabinets, counter space and pantry storage so we don't need it to hold stuff.

i wish that were the only thing up there. dh uses it as a place to put toys he doesn't want the kids playing with (if they get rough with a certain toy, it goes away for a while). he'll stash any random thing up there, really. it drives me crazy. i'm always clearing it off.

I guess it might look cluttered. Most of our house is cluttered to a degree, so I don't really care.
I am hoping that he is past that and hamster can move back to dd's room. I would love to have only a plant up there.
We have another high shelving unit (Ikea Ivar) in our kitchen with a high survace. On top of that, I have my fire extinguisher (hey - should wallmount that already!), boom box, basket for catchall odds and ends, paper towel roll holder, and dishsoap and soap for the dishwasher.
We have several huge containers of DH's protein powder. The problem is that he doesn't use any of them but won't let me throw them away. They're super expensive and he buys them, doesn't like the taste or whatever and puts them on top of the fridge. He's never going to use them. I know it. He knows it. But, he can't let me throw them away since it would be like throwing $40 away on each of them.
Pepper didn't care about the top of the fridge till we tried adopting a dog...the top of the fridge was the highest place she could get to and the dog couldn't LOL in the end we didn't adopt the dog but she is always up there!
We used to have all sorts of stuff up there and on the counters, etc. The pantry was overflowing, etc. We didn't even have children then, nor did we eat at home all that often. Somewhere along the line (after DD was born, but before she was eating real food), I decided I wanted to live differently. So, we made changes.........
