Relaxed or Cramped?

So I've noticed with my (admittedly) small collection that as my tarantulas approach "new cage time" they are out far more often.

I've noticed this in my avic, irminia, GBB, and schioedtei. They would be out regularly as they approach a need for an enclosure change. As soon as I switched them to a larger enclosure, they disappear to rarely be seen.

Are they just cramped up and in need of space so they're wandering or are they more relaxed when they know the extents of their surroundings?

I think they're just relaxed and settled in.

I have an A avic, and it is out almost every day. Its enclosure is about twice as big as the minimum requirements.

I also have a number of Aphonopelma which are out every day just because that's what they do.
