Based on your description and if there aren't any issues with the chain, I don't think I'd bother with a +1 on the rear. Too little effect. I'd say keep up with your good maintenance, inspecting it occasionally for tight spots, worn rear sprocket, or a front cog that begins to hook significantly. Yes, it is perfectly fine to replace the front sprocket if the chain and rear are still in good shape. The small diameter front bears the most load and wear, which is why it is made of hard steel and not aluminum as the rear, but it still wears faster. If all of that remains good, don't plan to change the chain/sprockets until the 10-link measurement is as described here:

This stuff gets debated on occasion, so the last thought is, do what makes you feel good.
