Changing Chainring

I'm getting a new Boardman MTB (29 pro if you are interested). It has a Sram GX crankset and a 32 T 1*11 setup. I currently run 38 T or 36T and it was my intention to fit one of these - say the 36 and get rid of the 32 as it is too undergeared for me. My instinct is that this will not require a new chain and the back is 10 to 42 and I doubt I'll use the lowest gears.

Will I need a new chain because of the larger front? My instinct is to use a larger ring around here - Thetford forest and put the smaller one on when going to mountains, trails but was wondering if I needed a chain for each setup.

....Halfords is offering bike discounts and a trade in for any bike against a new one - 10%.
...take your pickelf on your holibobs.... :D

jeez :roll:
