Updating custom theme with a 3rd party theme

Hi Experts,

I am working on a custom theme that has more to deal with the functionality (custom post types and taxonomies). I want to know if at a later stage, updating this custom theme (just to improve the front-end) with one of premium or any other 3rd party themes is going to effect the functionality of my wordpress website. If yes, what is the workaround? Is using a child theme way to go?
