Default Use 0,6W instead of 1/4W resistors?

I'm thinking about building a SSE, but wants to track down all the components to complete the amp before buying any of them. Because I live in Denmark I want to keep all the parts I have to buy in the US to a minimum, in a danish electronic store I've found all the resistors, but then for some reason there isn't 1/4W (for R10, R11, R12, R13, R15, R16, R19, R20, R21, R22, R23, R25, R26 and R29) but instead 0,6W, will it work or does it have to be 1/4W resistors?

It can have higher power ratings. Often this means a larger body size, but not always.

George leaves ample room on the PCB for the resistors. You should have no trouble fitting 0.6W resistors. They should be precision film resistors, though, unless you are going for some particular boutique ones.
