A quick question about movement joints for tile.

As per the above posts, I do notice that the movement joints in this tiled floor are a little tight. Worse, I see that some of them contain excess mortar, making them essentially useless.

In addition to the scraping out of some mortar (tiring work), I am wondering if I can use colour-matched silicone caulk to create some field movement joints in order to assist the lacking perimeter movement joints. I realize normally that option may not be as effective in a large tiled area, but in my case the field is never more than 2 tiles wide because of the overall shape of the small bathroom.

I am thinking I'll simply hide these movement joints where possible (behind door, under vanity etc).

Anyone have thoughts on this?
