Buy your OwnIf you feel like you can install your own tile, or can't afford to outsource to someone to cut and install the tile for you, you can purchase your own tile cutter to cut your larger pieces of tile for the edges of the room. These tile cutters can be found at Wal-Mart in the northern and southern areas of Austin, each in their own shopping centers. The two Home Depot stores, located in shopping centers on the opposite ends of the city, also sell tile cutters. Most hardware stores in Austin will carry tile cutters as well, from Breed and Co. in the central and west sides of Austin to Callahan's general store by the new airport.
