Skylight shade issue
I have a skylight in my kitchen and am having trouble coming up with a shade solution. I love the light I get from it, but because I do not have central air (through the wall units), so the kitchen becomes terribly hot in the summer. My skylight is unusual (at least I think so), my ceiling is flat, not angled. The cut out is a 24" x 24" square and there's about another 24" recession before the skylight starts. The skylight itself is one of those bubble lights, so the surface isn't flat. What I've currently got in place is two tension rods with a blackout shade attached to it - it helps some, but looks pretty ugly. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg and am not really sure how else to blunt the heat; I welcome ideas.
