It is not possible to change one Wix template with another one within a created site. It is also not possible to combine two different Wix templates in one site- you are able to edit only one at a time. If you wish to choose a different template, simply create a new site.
 

After creating the new site you can easily move your premium status to it! Simply enter your "manage premium" system via "My Account".

Please note that you will have to attach your domain to your updated site. You can do it via the Domain Manager when clicking on "Manage Premium".
 

You can find more information here .
You can find a video tutorial about "Manage Premium" here .

    I agree with others. Being able to switch layouts without having to build an entirely new site would be extremely helpful. I switched to wix from another company and you could easily switch from layout to layout and it would automatically update new layout with your content so its def possible. 

    Sites can get old and boring if they never change their layouts. =)

      Hi Freebie Ninja,

      thank you very much for your feedback. Unfortunately this is currently not possible, but we hope to add this functionality in the future. Please also note that with Wix, you have almost absolute control over your site's design. The templates are just a suggestion or a starting point. You can always take your existing site and perform a complete design make-over. 

      Cheers,

      Dima -Wix support team-

    Hi Wix Team,

    Hope to see this feature in near future is enable. As times goes, New template and layout will be add on and site owner will want to change to existing site. Doing a new site from the start again simply not helping the owners or premium plan owner doing their site the easier way.

    Using different site creator for years, I believe it can be done. WIX has so much stuff better than other provider, at this area if other provider able to do so I believe so can WIX.

      Hello, You can switch your premium package from one template to the other in the same account as many times as you like.

       

      To switch your premium plan to another Wix site: Sign in to your Wix account > hover over Subscriptions > click Premium Plans > under the relevant plan, click Transfer > select the new site > click OK.

       

      Note: Make sure to assign your domain to your updated site. After transferring your plan, under Manage Premium, click Domains > next to the relevant domain, click Manage.

      Under Domain Connects To, click Change > select the relevant site > click Save.

       

      For more information about transferring your plan to another site, click here.

       

      Best regards

    PLEASE DO make templates Changeable. Consider how visually versatile Wix is and then there is a limit to the general design itself. It doesn't make sense for us as the users. I sure hope it happens soon. Styles change over time, so this would be cool. Thanks Wix

    Can I rebuild my Wix site?

    Can I rebuild my Wix site using a different template? I don't want to start from scratch or duplicate .... all I want is to take my site in its current format and change the template I used to build it.
