The Hammerton’s team knows that your kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s where the family comes together, where you sit with a coffee planning your next holiday and welcome friends with a glass of something tasty! 

Mike Hammerton created Hammerton’s Kitchens for Real Cooks in the heart of his own home nearly 30 years ago. These days the showroom and workshop are at Sunset Farm in leafy East Sussex and the business continues with the same family values. 

As Mike says: “we’re big enough to cope but small enough to care about each of our customers.

I lead a friendly, design-led company which bridges the gap between ‘out of the catalogue’ kitchen supermarkets, unable to be flexible when it comes to bespoke design, and carpenters, who whilst making fine furniture, do not always understand kitchen design. I always keep everything as environmentally friendly as possible, we don’t supply ‘flat-pack’ and our suppliers are all based in the UK except for our stone tops which we source from the best of suppliers in the home country of stone; Italy

Of course, all this would be a waste of time if we compromised on the installation. Properly installed, your kitchen will look good year after year and our installers are chosen not only for their expertise and dedication but also for their good manners.”

Hammerton’s installers take the time to do the job properly and Mike personally inspects the installation ensuring your kitchen is just as we have planned it. Our gas fitters are ‘Gas Safe’ registered and all electrical work is done to ‘Part P’ building regs and properly certificated. Hammerton’s can organise trades people for all the jobs which are part of re-modelling a kitchen or we can work with your own people if you prefer.

If all this is important to you too, give us a call on 01435 868611 or email

Opening times

During the current emergency the showroom will be open by appointment only, to ensure that only one client group is in the showroom at any one time.  This is to protect both staff and clients.  We clean the showroom regularly but would like you to wear a mask and gloves. We are happy to have phone consultations or via skype.  Production is operating normally at the moment as is design and consultancy and installation.
Designing a kitchen is an involved process which is best done with careful consideration so now is probably a good time to start the process so that we can be ready when the situation is less stressful.

The situation and government advice changes daily so please call for the latest information.  07710 125092
