The grey area in between the top and content

How do I get rid of the grey area that is visible in between the top header menu part and the content. It is displayed everywhere except the homepage and quite disturbing. It can be seen in the image I shared.

Thanks in advance.

Yeap, I found out the answer. Add the below code to Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS

/*Remove header*/
.header-callout {
    display: none;

The only question now is, how could I have made use of such a wide bar over there? It obviously destroys the beauty of shapely at its default… There definitely must be a use of it I guess?

Hello there,

I hope you are doing well today.

You would use that to display the blog post title and you can have a background image there also.

You can change it via Appearance > Customize > Blog Settings > Blog Index Settings.

Best Regards,
