I am creating a site using 2014 theme. I would like to remain with the theme but however, I am interested in shifting the side bar from left to right as it is more ideal for my site. Is it possible to customise the theme in this way.

It is possible, yes, but a heck of a lot of tweaking. I just finished a theme I created from the twentyfourteen theme. I totally removed the left sidebar, and that alone was quite a job. You will need get into twentyfourteen and fight it out. Enjoy – Pieter Goosen Apr 24 '14 at 9:44
@PieterGoosen can i have guidelines to follow. I have coding know how but am not sure i know where to go, have not coded wordpress before – sosytee Apr 24 '14 at 9:52
@sosytee Make your own one, don't just edit TwentyFourteen. If so, then all the changes will wipe out on the next theme Update. Better make a Child theme on TwentyFourteen or edit everything to wipe out the T14 credentials to make them stay. :) – Mayeenul Islam Apr 24 '14 at 9:57
O yes, that is important like @MayeenulIslam said. Don't just edit the twenty fourteen theme. It is another case if you are creating a complete new theme using twenty fourteen as a base. In that case you will change all instances of twenty fourteen. – Pieter Goosen Apr 24 '14 at 10:22
It is difficult to give you a guideline, as this is a lengthy process. And then there are two scenarios, one been building a new theme completely of twenty fourteen, the other, keeping twenty fouteen as a parent and creating your own child theme – Pieter Goosen Apr 24 '14 at 10:42
