Observe the clarity of the pattern. Good quality laminate flooring has clear patterns, natural and smooth patterns, no ghosting and no stains.

Observe the stitching from the seam and the height difference. Take samples at random to try and see if there is any separation of the seams. Use your hand to feel whether there is a significant difference in the feel of the seam. If there is, the quality is poor.

Smell the substrate. There is no irritating nose and eyes odor on the section of good quality products, and it means that the quality is poor.
