What Makes a Great Kitchen Table? A good kitchen table needs to meet certain requirements. First, its tabletop should be made of heavy-duty material, like solid hardwood. A kitchen table would undergo far more wear and tear than any other table in the house. Warm pans, sharp knives, heavy pots, and wet vegetables or meat will always be placed or used over it. A table made of any other material would be easily destroyed under these circumstances. Then, its legs should be strong enough to withstand heavy weights and constant movement over the tabletop. And lastly, a kitchen table should also be easy to clean, and pleasant to look at. It should be made to withstand years and years of rigorous use.
