Bedroom eaves storage area- what material to cover existing floor?

    Hi all, I recently bought a house with a bedroom extension above the original FLAT roof garage, This Bedroom includes 2 large areas at either end in the eaves. Both are accessible through a small door.

    I want to use these areas for mainly the storage of boxes . There is existing insulation between the rafters.

    My question is I want to put something down on top of the existing floor which is basically the original 'rubber / felt / tar' (not sure exactly the material) of the flat roof garage.

    I'm not sure what the best option is. Ive been looking a various underlay, foam, xps products. There are so many for example


    I have about 9m^2 to cover.

    the floor is not fully even so would need something with a bit of flexibility.

    Breathability and insulation options would be great

    I would need to be able to walk on this floor without damaging the material.

    Thanks in advance
