20 C is good in most cases, unless the material is specifically indicated as requiring refrigeration, typically between 4 - 8 C.

20-25C is a good range.  I believe the USP also says that if a chemical storage room is above 30-35C for more than 24 hours the stability of all chemicals should be re-evaluated.  I once had to scrap about 100 bottles of assorted chemicals because of a problem with our AC in mid July. 


I think to be safe the room should be kept as close to 20C as possible.  Another range I have heard cited, which I think applies to clean-room environments, is 18-22C.
