Because of the psychological connection of tastes and smells with our emotions, the positive memories created in the kitchen can last a lifetime. Susan Whitbourne, a psychology professor at the University of Massachusetts, explains that when meals are shared and stories are told around the table, people connect and it strengthens the bonds of friendship and family (via Canadian Broadcasting Corporation). So it's safe to say that the kitchen table carries a special significance in the home.

You may be ready to create some special memories around a new table in your own kitchen. Whether you're looking for a table that's big enough to host a large holiday gathering or an intimate meal for two, it can be exciting to see all the different options available. Maybe you'd prefer a sturdy wood table or one with a glass top that's easy to clean, or perhaps you're focused on the best size and shape that will fit into the layout of your home. No matter what your priorities are, there's a table that will suit your existing décor and lifestyle. Walmart offers a wide variety of kitchen tables to consider, and we've collected some important information regarding three of their best sellers.

Modern farmhouse

The Better Homes and Gardens Maddox Crossing Dining Table is made of sturdy wood and has a modern farmhouse look with its broad top, criss-crossed legs, and support beam beneath. It can accommodate six guests comfortably. The table is sold separately for $198.99 and can easily be paired with a matching set of two Maddox Crossing Dining Chairs for an additional $99.01 or the padded Maddox Bench for $79.00. Buying these pieces separately allows you to decide how much seating you need, and you can always order more if the occasion arises. The dark brown color of this collection provides a handsome and classic backdrop for more colorful tabletop décor.

Reviews for the table itself are overwhelmingly positive, as customers love its color and sturdiness, as well as its matching seating options. One reviewer says, "This table absolutely exceeded my expectations. It is very heavy and a very good quality wood." This person also comments, "No one would think a table like this would be so wonderfully priced! Not to mention the fact that it is very stylish and modern." While many customers agree that the table is beautiful, some express frustration over damage caused during shipping. Perhaps because it is such a heavy piece, it sometimes arrives with dents or scratches. Customers appeared to have some luck getting the table replaced when this happened, but it did take some time.

Glass top

The Bealife Rectangular Kitchen Table includes six chairs and comes in three different colors: black, white, and a marble-colored top. This table has a beautiful tempered glass surface, which always looks attractive and is easy to clean. The chairs are also easy to wipe down, and the padded cushions make them comfortable to sit on as well. This dining set is priced at $329.98.

Customers who have purchased this set are very pleased with how it looks in their homes, such as one reviewer who says, "Very good quality, sturdy table and chairs. We love the glass top look of the table and the comfy chairs." Several note that it takes a couple of hours to assemble everything, but it's relatively easy to do so and all the parts are included. Another reviewer says that it's just the right size for a family of six people, commenting, "Absolutely love my table, it looks just like the pictures. I always get compliments on how beautiful my table is. The perfect size for my dining space."

Contemporary shabby chic

The Better Homes and Gardens Collin Wood and Metal Dining Table has the beautiful appearance of a rustic shabby chic table with a metal base. The table is sold separately for $210.30 and coordinates with a matching set of two Collin Distressed White Dining Chairs for another $109.01. There is room to seat four people comfortably, but it's also possible to add an additional chair on each end.

Customers love this table, and they mention it works well with rustic farmhouse décor as well as in a home with an industrial aesthetic. One person adds, "This table... was bigger and heavier than expected, which I loved! Looks way more expensive than what I paid for it. The distressed metal legs are perfect. Easily put it together myself." Reviews also point out that the tabletop is darker than it seems in the picture, and while it appears to simulate wood, the tabletop is not solid wood. However, they love that it feels substantial and it looks very stylish. One reviewer states, "This table is stunning and, honestly, I was shocked at how beautiful and sturdy [it] is for the price! I would buy this again and recommend over and over."
