what kind of mat would be good to sleep on every night (instead of a bed)?

are there any roll-up/fold-up mats i could be comfy sleeping on every single night for, let's say, a year? i'm about to move to a teeny tiny room (about 11'x5'4"). i have plenty of common space available to me in the larger apartment but would love for my room to contain more than just a bed.

it would be great if i could quickly roll up my bed every morning and gain floor space. i fear that the foam pads/mats made for hikers aren't meant to be used daily (in terms of comfort and/or durability), although i have no idea. another thing that came to mind was a thai massage mat (i remember getting a thai massage and thinking the mat was so comfortable i could sleep on it). again, i don't know how long one would last if it were used for 8 hours every night.
i know that plenty of people all over the world sleep on mats/the floor and their bodies survive just fine. any recommendations?
i'm a professional acrobat, so it IS important to me to have a sleeping situation that is good for my back and my body in general.
and i don't want a loft bed.
