Saying the layout is not a subway tile is rather picky. The tile itself in size and dimension is known as a subway tile. Now most metropolitan or government entities have no imagination as to layout of the subway tile except one way.
I appreciate Lowes showing other "Subway Tile" layouts---thinking out of the box. I was wanting to use some of the tile in my bathroom but hated the same old basic layout. Your designers have given me thoughts to ponder upon.
I am working on the designs to redo 2 bathrooms (one master and one general that is between two bedrooms --a pass through bathroom.
I am even considering the illusion of a rug with tile, the small ceiling fans, and since I have the opportunity how to sneak storage and niches into the room and tub and shower spaces.
Again thank you on the new out of the box thinking for the subway tiles. I always like being different. Drove people at work nuts because my desk would be at an angle instead of the same old position that everyone in the company had. You would not believe the parade of people who would come to check the office layout. I don't want to be like everyone else. No lemmings for me. I am redoing a 1958 home where two sides are sliding glass panels and two sides are brick ways. Because of fences, no one can see in. We love it being able to see the wildlife that ventures in to our courtyard to enjoy the fresh water and sometimes surprise of bird seeds or other surprises.

Good luck with your renovations! We recently featured a tile rug treatment in a bathroom remodel. Maybe you can draw on some inspiration for your project here:
