My room get overheated by the evening sun. I have some blinds but its not really helping. I was wondering if putting some reflective insulation would help. Not removing the blinds but between the blinds and the glass.

The room is on 2nd floor so would prefer a solution that doesnt need outside modifications. Secondly, would prefer a medium term solution that I can possibly easily remove when I move.

Thoughts? Feedback? Anything I should be worried about? Less concerned that it might not look great from the outside - but if it keeps the room cooler, I would be happy. Thank you in advance.
