Comprehensive renovations in classic homes can often include major changes to light fixtures in common rooms such as the kitchen and the bathroom. Some drab interiors within traditional homes can be revived with modern chandeliers, such as the Domino 5-Light Bar from Barn Light Electric.
A perfect example is found within the bathroom phase of a house-wide remodeling project. This Georgian Colonial style home happens to be nestled within the historic town of Hickory, North Carolina.
