"Household" usually can be interchangeable with "domestic", but not always the other way around.
For example, you don´t usually say a "household flight" but a "domestic flight" or "household commerce" but ''domestic commerce''.
So, household is more, say, "within home/family stuff" or in the sense of "well known by everyone" ("a household name", albeit it´s a  name well all over the country or even the world over).


Domestic might means both, something "from around house/family matters etc" something from the state, national  etc; compared to their international counterparts (domestic commerce vs international commerce etc...)
