Who do i need to call?(redesign room layout )

I am planning on renoing my 1960, 3 bedroom, one bath split level home. I am wanting to do some updating and see if there is a more efficient way to lay out the bathroom/bedrooms. Who do i need to speak with to come up with a better floor plan/layout?

An architect or designer would be the skill you need--there are several here--also a bunch of BC members who could PM you a name--I'll add to your title to draw attention if you like.--Mike---

You may want to hire a designer, but in planning my basement, I bought a program from Amazon, Better Homes and Gardens Interior Designer and played with it until I got some ideas about layout. It was an older one, but was great for just doing different room designs and was pretty easy to use. I had to reverse the bath and closet and move some doors, etc but it was very helpful to get started.

An architect or or interior designer will be an amazing an experience for you. Sweet Home 3D is rather an amazing program if you want to communicate with them. It is free and open source. People from all over contribute symbols. Don't waste money on the H&G stuff when you can get software for free?
