    I have two issues I need some help with please.

    1) We have this Ikea bathroom cabinet https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/enhet-mirror-cabinet-with-2-doors-white-s39323669/

    We want to install it on a plasterboard/hollow wall (I think that's right - its an interior wall in a new build) My son wants to mount it on the studs but the spacing of the studs doesn't match the plastic holes on the cabinet. Which are the best fixings to buy please?

    2) We have also bought this ikea coat rack https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/hemnes-hat-rack-white-60243798/

    We want to again install it on an interior plasterboard/hollow wall. My son thinks we can install this one on studs, but isnt entirely sure. Again, what would be the best fixings to buy please?

    Hollow wall anchors.

    The trick with these is to get the special "setting" tool. Makes them much easier to use and not fowl them up.
