I'm looking for some tips on installing the Ikea Moran Mull carpet in our basement. The floor is below grade. Do we have to use the Sparra plastic sheeting and Niva floor lining underneath? If so, which one do we lay first and how do we adhere them to the floor?
I don't have a clue about your installation questions but I want to welcome you to IKEAfans! Did the carpet tiles come with any instructions? Maybe this will serve as a bump to put your post in front of someone who is familiar with the product.
Similar to other floating floors, the plastic goes down first, then the foam. Just some regular tape works fine enough to hold down the plastic; you won't need it to adhere, but just to prevent it from moving around during installation.
By the time the floor is done, there's way more than enough weight on top as to not be any issue with either the plastic or the foam.

I highly recommend AGAINST Moran Mull. It's so poorly constructed that the parts which are supposed to click together do so only about 20% of the time. Different lots are different sizes, so the tiles in one box will be 1/8" larger than the others, which makes it impossible to use those. The tiny "sisal" fibers come loose easily and imbed themselves in your skin. But they're so breakable that you can't get them out with tweezers. The seams only lay flat a portion of the time, regardless of having been stored in the room with its unique temperature and humidity for the recommended amount of time, nice and flat. The sisal part comes unglued from the flimsy plastic backing with very little provocation. I'm very upset and displeased and feel completely ripped off.
