Where to put seam in laminate countertop


I picked up a couple of laminate Ikea countertops during their end of year sale that I'm going to install. I've got about a 10' straight run of counter with a sink in it, so will need to butt join two of the counters together. Wanted to get some input on the best place to put that joint? I thought about putting it at the sink to minimize the appearance, but wasn't sure about water issues of that.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Mike
