An alternative to home wine rack cabinets is wine storage lockers. These lockers are excellent for smaller collections of wine. Usually, they are found within larger wine storage areas, many of which are commercial. Think of them as a smaller version of a walk-in wine cellar. The lockers are temperature and humidity controlled. (That means they also receive similar regular maintenance.) Should you decide to store your wines in a wine storage locker, inquire if the facility has insurance to cover your wines. Most do, but it's wise to take the extra step to ensure the safety of your collection.
