On something like that i just snap my 45 deg. lines,and use a gauge,a cut piece of tile or my tape measure to set my brick pattern pieces to put down the field.

Only other thing I could offer is.....along the long wall[cabinet wall?],use fulls and halves,IF, your layout will permit decent sized pieces in other areas too.

If the walls are out of square really bad, I'd think it would look funny haveing all different size pieces running down there.

I get my one diagonal line in the middle, then ignore the walls & use only that line & treat it like a square lay floor for laying out grids or lines. Bond pattern doesn't require many lines. Here's a pic:
