I currently have my mouse cage on the dresser in my room but am looking to move them to a smaller pantry-type room. The small room is open to the house and everything, but the light from the windows doesn't really reach it. Currently, they get a medium amount of natural light in my room. I wasn't sure how important this factor was in moving them. I know temperature can be a concern, but would it be bad to put them in a room if natural sunlight doesn't really reach it?

I think the main issue would be the mouse's circadian rhythm. From what I remember people that are blind have issues beyond their lack of sight due to not being able to process light, such as sleep deprivation.

If you have a light in the room that you can turn on and off at dawn and dusk that should work, but total darkness all the time probably wouldn't be best.

This. A light you can turn on and off (or put on a timer) will solve the problem but leaving the room dark at all times would not be good. They need some sort of day/night cycle, whether artificial or natural.
