Store wine on its side or standing up?

I have a 50 bottle wine fridge that is full. The more I get into wine, obviously the more I am purchasing. I am at a point now I have 10+ bottles of wine, at any one point, that can’t fit in the fridge. I live in Southern CA and don’t have a basement and my garage get very hot. I have been storing the extra bottles in low kitchen cabinet standing up. Every time I drink a bottle from the fridge, I replace it with one from the cabinet. My question is, should I be storing the bottles in the cabinet on their sides or is it ok to stand them up?
