Creating an Indoor Root Cellar?

I have a pantry that I built inside my basement, it has 2 outer walls. How do I keep my potatoes and onions from sprouting? What kind of climate do I need to create?

The most important thing is to keep them pitch black, and also keep them semi cool and not too humid. I put mine in the bottomest drawer in my kitchen

this site has more advice on how to keep them from sprouting: "In order to store well and not sprout, homegrown potatoes need to be cured in a relatively warm place before they are stored in a cooler. Put your unwashed, new potatoes in shallow layers. and cure them in a dark area with a temperature of 60 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit and a high humidity, such as 85 to 95 percent." homeguides.sfgate.com/keep-potatoes-sprouting-storage-96015.html

Potatoes need cool and dry climate. Do not put potatoes and onions together.
