You can do that several ways. Depending on the level of accuracy you can use the floor material or floor material regions or a combination of the two or even multiple floor material regions.  Psolids also work.  It is completely up to you and how you need to display it in your presentation or drawing set.

Sorry couldn’t resist. 

 

Seriously, if you want that kind of control, I think you would have to draw a tile as a p-solid on the plan and use the “multiple copy” tool. That way you can change any tile you want to whatever color and in whatever pattern you want. Then you could have a p-solid covering the entire area of the room in question with a thickness less than that of the tile to act as the grout. 

 

Here’s a chief video on the multiple copy tool...
