Visual Space on Refrigerator

When you look at glossy magazine pictures of kitchens you rarely see anything on the front of the refrigerator. They keep it clear to add visual space to the room.

Of course, there are many things you may want to put on the refrigerator, like a calendar, so everyone can see it. I compromised by placing everything on the side of my refrigerator. The information is visible, but I still have visual space by leaving the front clear.
