Inheriting family home! Help making it my own

My mother desperately wants to move to a condo instead of her home, so I've decided to buy our mother's share of the house from my sister, and live in it myself. I feel uncomfortable changing the home since I've lived in it until I was 21 and my mother will be visiting this home often... I feel like the furniture thats already here has to be kept in the same locations. Sofa and TVs in a certain spot, even if she does take them. Maybe the opportunity and power to change the home is making me nervous...


Should I force myself to move the my future sofas into different spots in the rooms? Or should I keep the same flow? I want to make the home my own but I feel awkward about changing her view of the home, as if insulting her tastes... How do I separate this home into being my own?
