Question:

Non-permanent/damaging ceiling hook or similar? I have no overhead lights!?

Yes, I know I should get floor lamps since I have no overhead lights, but are there any non permanent ceiling hooks that would let you hang a light (as in weight) plug-in fixture?Also, what about from a tiled ceiling? Are there accessory stores for things that hang from the grid part?

Answer:

What I have found to work quite well in my basement with a suspended ceiling is to remove one of the ceiling tiles, place a lightweight board across the frame and hang my light from that by making one tiny hole in the tile for the wiring..good luck

there are hooks with a double stick foam tape that will easily hold 10lbs. of weight. (Any hardware store) As long as what you are hanging is not too heavy, you should be fine. you can remove (when the time comes) with a razor blade and a little touchup paint.
