Hi Avantika,
You can definitely create tabs for a custom object and also for a lightning component, visualforce pages, web tabs, lightning pages.
For creating tabs go to Setup-> tabs->custom object tabs->select your custom object.

To show tab in navigation bar go to Setup->Salesforce->salesforce navigation->choose your tab.
Select it as best answer if it helps.

you don't have to create tab for Standard Objects. You can add a Standart Object tab to your app from App Manager.
From SetUp>AppManager choose your app that you want to add tab. Then from AppManager choose Navigation Items and select the Standart Object you want to add. Pass the object from left column to right column and save.

You can create tabs for CUSTOM objects only, but NOT for STANDARD objects. Tabs for standard objects are automatically displayed if both of the following conditions are true:

- In the user's profile, the tab setting is "Default On" or "Default Off" (in other words: not "hidden").
- The user has object permission for the corresponding object.

Otherwise, ff the conditions are not true, the user can not see the tab.
