I live in a co-op apartment in NYC and I do not have the space to convert a closet in a cellar like I have read people doing.
We do have a storage space in the basement that is made of metal, just like at any self storage places. It doesn't seem to get cool enough because it is not totally underground and the laundry room is near by. My questions are the following,
1) is there a way I monitor it see if the humidity and temperature is good enough keep wine in.
2) We are going to re do our kitchen and I want to put a small wine cooler/cellar in it. I can't afford a eurocave or something like that. Can any recommend one of the other brands like Kenmore, Haier or Avanti that they have had good luck with. I know they are not for long tern storage, but we are a top floor and the summer was very hot?
