You are right about heat and light. Even though we all have spice cabinets in the kitchen, it's best to store them elsewhere. I have a hall pantry which works perfect. My bulk spices are stored in the BIG pantry in the basement.
I know I'd like to see a pic of the pantry and I'd guess some other folks would too.
