Using SMD resistors on a prototyping board

Hi, 

I'm thinking of using SMD (surface mounting resistors) instead of the normal ones (throught hole) on a prototyping board in order to save space.

It`s a good idea?

Or it will be easier using normal resistors?

Thanks for the photo. I wasn´t sure if they fit properly between the holes. Now i am!

 

 

Why not? I've been using SMD resistors and capacitors very often on prototyping boards. I prefer the bigger SMD types 1206, those fits nicely between the solder pads.
