Floor tile spacers

Is there any harm in using floor tiles spacers on my wall tiles? I'm using coloured grout, so I think a wider gap will make it stand out more.

"Not at all spacers are all the same really back in the day before spacers people would use matches lol to go between tiles to create a gap"

"It is perfectly fine to use whatever spacer size you want on wall or floor tiles. It is your choice on the size of the gap.
Be careful though that the gap is very much perfectly made on all tiles as the larger the gap, the smaller mistakes can be spotted."
