so my family has had a single Lovebird for plenty of years now, but its cage is about 15" W x 15" L x 18" H. It wasn't until recently that I learned that the cage I bought might be bad for them, so I wanted to ask, should I get a bigger one? If so, what size would be recommended?

A bird's cage size can depend on the bird itself: your cage is on the small side, but if your bird spends a lot of time outside the cage & only uses the cage to sleep, it can suffice.

However, if your bird spends the majority of time in its cage, you need something bigger. This website contains a handy reference for the minimum cage size for a given species:

Species | Min. Cage Size | Bar Spacing

Finches | 18"x18"x30" | 1/4" to 1/2"

Canaries | 18"x18"x24" | 1/4" to 1/2"

Budgies | 18"x18"x24" | 1/2"

Cockatiels | 20"x20"x24" | 1/2" to 5/8"

Lovebirds/Parrotlets | 24"x24"x24 | 1/2"

Ringneck Parakeets 24"x24"x36" 1/2" to 5/8"

Conures/Poicephalus | 24"x24"x24" | 5/8" to 3/4"

Caiques/Pionus/Jardine's | 24"x24"x36" | 5/8" to 3/4"

Amazons/Mini Macaws/Coffin's Cockatoos/African Greys | 34"x24"x36" | 3/4" to 1"

Large Cockatoos | 36"x48"x48" | 1" to 1.5"

Large Macaws | 36"x48"x60" | 1" to 1.5"
