Quaker cages?

Hi, I am Matilda's mom. She is an 11 year old, owner surrender, Quaker parrot that we adopted from our local Humane Society 2 months ago. I currently have her in the cage that my cockatiel, Jack, lived in for 20 years. It's actually in excellent condition, and it was perfect for him, and would perhaps suit a Lovebird or some parrolets, but it's not big enough for Matilda. I'm new to Quakers and she is sooooo busy! She needs more space. I am seriously shopping for cages and have zeroed in on the Prevue 18"x 18" x 31.5" cage with the playgym on top and the seed guards on the bottom. It's wonderful looking. I've seen it in the store and have been shopping the best prices on line. Now I have found another site where I can get the Prevue 23.5" x 19.5" x 33" model for only a few dollars more. The larger cage would possibly be more of an issue for us. We'd probably have to move her to another location within the same room. If we got the smaller version, I'm sure we could keep her in exactly the same spot, just in the new cage. What do you think? Is bigger always better? Right now she's in a cage that is 15" x 21" x 22". I'd really love your thoughts. Please let me know what you think. Also, if you have a Quaker, or have one of these Prevue cages, please tell me your thoughts. Thank you!

I would get a flight cage, they're great for the money and are very, very roomy
