What to do about sun on the front door

+7
Answered
My front door and living room windows face eastwards and so from sunrise till a little after noon gets direct sunlight. The door is made of metal, with a fake wood layer which is peeling because of the heat...

The door itself heats up from the inside and can be very hot to the touch. Is there anything I can do to the door to reflect the light/heat?

I thought of coating it with aluminum foil, though that would be unpleasant for people walking in the street, not to mention that it wouldn't look so good...

Any ideas? Thanks!
