Layer them up

You can either black out cloth or add a lining to your present curtains. The other option is tightly woven cotton cloth to any trendy curtains of silk or any fabric. These layers will block the heat from entering your space.

Pastel shades

Go for pastel colors and light shades like white instead of dark ones which absorbs heat and cotton is the best suitable fabric for curtains in summers.

Awnings

This is my favorite one. Awnings look so beautiful if you add some natural essence to your windows and by natural essence I simply mean plants with colorful flowers. Awnings are used to shade windows which reduce heat gain in summers. These are made up from synthetic fabrics such as acrylic. All they need is to be re-covered in every five to seven years. Go for the best colors and designs in accordance to your walls
