Flick through the image gallery below for a selection of Hammonds’ bespoke fitted wardrobes and matching furniture.
Hammonds has both fitted and sliding wardrobe ranges, all of which are grouped into 'classic', 'contemporary' and 'easy living' categories.
It also has an extensive range of additional bedroom furniture and storage options, such as dressing tables, built-in desks and bench seats with drawers (freestanding or fitted). You can choose to include built-in lighting as part of your design.
All of Hammonds' furniture comes with a 10-year guarantee. It claims to use sustainable materials and says that its furniture is manufactured in the UK.
Its wardrobes have a soft, sophisticated look and can be designed into any shape or size of room, including an awkward loft room with sloping ceilings or a small box bedroom.
Most of Hammonds wardrobe carcasses come with hinged doors as standard. A few are also available with sliding doors, and there are some additional sliding wardrobe options.
Most of its doors, whether sliding or hinged, come in a wide variety of muted colours – creams, soft pinks and light greys. Some also also come in wood-effect.
You can also have mirrors added, and one of its sliding door fronts is entirely mirrored. Its internal drawers are soft close and double-fronted, for added strength. Its doors have multiple hinges for stability.
Hammonds has three types of internal storage – premium, aluminium and front frame. With any of these, you can then choose different storage options to go inside it.
The premium interior is fully enclosed with tops, sides and backs, which it says makes it sturdier and keeps your clothes dust-free.
The aluminium option offers a more streamlined and modern look, which it says is perfect for a walk-in wardrobe.
The front frame option doesn't have sides or backs, so all the space inside can be used.
As well as the usual rails, drawers and shelves, you can choose to add pull-out shoe racks and trouser rails, jewellery trays and cosmetic units to store toiletries.
There's also a built-in corner linen unit and tilted linen basket for inside your wardrobe. It even offers a dedicated linen cupboard. You can also get:
To buy Hammonds fitted furniture you will need to book a free design appointment. You can either do this virtually via a video call, or at your home.
If you choose to have a virtual appointment, you'll need to book a time slot for an initial call, where Hammonds' staff will discuss your room and options with you.
You'll then need to send Hammonds rough sketches and measurements for your room - you can ask for help with this if you're struggling. You'll then have the video call where the designer will show you their 3D design of your room and ideas.
If you opt for an at-home appointment, the designer will measure up and discuss options and styles with you, adhering to social distancing guidelines and wearing the relevant PPE. They will then draw up a 3D design to help you visualise your choice.
If you would rather get ideas before you book an appointment, you can order a brochure in the post, or download one online. Hammonds also has a blog and digital magazine, which features real makeovers for inspiration.
Plus, it has more than 90 showrooms across the UK that you can visit, many of which are housed within other stores, such as Furniture Village and Next.
Hammonds doesn't give an average estimate for how long delivery will take. However, as its furniture is made to measure, a long waiting time is to be expected, depending on what you're ordering and your requirements.
Hammonds furniture is made and installed to measure, so you can't simply buy furniture to fit yourself.
Alongside its wardrobes and other storage furniture mentioned above, Hammonds sells matching chests of drawers (fitted or freestanding) and bedside tables.
To complete your bedroom, you can also get coordinated headboards, stools and wall, dressing or standing mirrors.
Hammonds also offers a small range of fitted kitchens and offices, all of which follow similar designs to the wardrobes.
