It is not clear to me what you mean by "lightning" in the context of  "electrical appliances at home", but I am guessing you are talking about an electrical discharge through a gas, either gas contained in a glass tube, or just the air surrounding the appliance.  Certainly such things are possible.

However, without a more specific query, I cannot guess what it is you want to build.

Nope it WILL kill you and perhaps others.

It produces ozone and in the very olden days was useful in producing forest fires the cleared out old overgrown areas that allowed new growth. That's not much of a problem for the last 200 years or so.

As far as I know there is no practical use for lightning. I've seen it used in photography as the subject, and in research but nothing to harvest any energy from the strike itself.

Well, if you manage to survive then I suppose its possible to write up a project and publish it.
