Default Gun storage

So I have a question about storing guns in an unheated garage. I have read up on tons of threads where people discuss storing guns in a SAFE in an unheated garage, but no one addresses storing guns in a cabinet. I have a gun cabinet made by Stack-on that I'm thinking about storing in the garage. Temps can get from 20 in the winter to 95 in the summer. Since air can (and will) easily get in and out of the cabinet (unlike a safe), would a dehumidifier even work? Any suggestions about storing in this type of setting with a cabinet as opposed to a safe?

PS security is not an issue. I'm talking strictly about the cosmetic concerns for my guns.

Also an update on my question, IF it is feasible to store it in my garage in this cabinet, what is the reccomended humidity level range? I'll probably get a humidstat and keep it in the cabinet.
