Battens also help make the top look thicker without actually being thicker. You could come sidereal doing them along all four edges. If you use hardwood lumber and get it flat and 3/4” thick, adding a 3/4” strip under the four edges gives you that 1.5” look you are after, and saves you some wood and money. With enough supports along its length it will still be plenty strong for a table top.
