    Three M offers a window film for that purpose.

  • Your choices are limited - film as mentioned followed by increasing the overhang / adding awning, planting trees, or using sun screens

    I had a very large sunroom with this problem. I ended putting up wood slat blinds and it was a stunning improvement and solved the problem and lowered my utility bills. You will find online and others offer cutom sizes, fast delivery, variety of woods or faux woods at very good prices. You may be surprised at the low cost values out there, with discounts too! This also adds real dollar to your home value.

    How about using translucent curtains? It wont entirely negate the sun but it will keep it at bay and let you keep your view.

    You could hang these Entri Window Panels. They are velcro-mounted. You put them up when you need them and remove them when you don't. They come off in just a second because they're only attached with velcro.

    Several companies make translucent solar (roller) shades. Theyre used a lot in office buildings. And, I imagine, Arizona and coastal beach-front homes. Several companies will send you samples, and you can pick color and what percentage of "see through" you want. They're not necessarily inexpensive, but they look great and will save your floors and furniture as well as your eyes.
