These measurements are only general guidelines. Considerations to follow when measuring for the size of lazy susan you need for your table include:
Your place setting arrangement. (Particularly for rectangle tables)
The overall size of your place settings (glasses/goblets, chargers, side plates, etc.)
Range of reach. The average 5'8" adult can comfortably reach up to 20" when seated, idealy not more than 18".
If you want to serve large dishes of food, rather than just condiments, etc., 24" is the minimum starting point for an everyday size meal that seves 5. Come Thanksgiving and the tom-turkey, think towards 30"-32" minimum.
