I have an interior plasterboard wall separating the utility room from the lounge On the LH side of the wall is the underside of the stairs. On the RH side is the boiler, a couple of electric switches and an external wall. The wall is about 7 feet wide.
I want to fix a shelf onto this wall but cannot find any studs to screw into. I've tried the magnet approach - nothing I have a cheap stud finder which finds studs but when I drill through the plasterboard there seems to be no wood. The drill goes in about 1.5 - 2cm and then no resistance at all.
Any other suggestions as to how I might find the studs?
