How far should curtain rod extend past window against the wall?

The wall on the right side of the window is about 18". I'm curious how far I can extend the rod so as to showcase more curtain when the window is open. Can I have the rod butting all the way up to the side wall? Or should I have more like 2 inches? Or 5 inches? I'm going for modern look, so probably just a dark bar and not any big fancy ball ornaments.
