GByte are more than enough for a root file system, where usually nothing
happens but a little writing to and from /tmp and /var/tmp.

There are excellent reasons to have /tmp and /var each on separate file
system/partitions,

Not when you use btrfs. You need them on the same partition for
snapshots to work.

No you don't

Even using BtrFS you can have the snapshot mechanism with/on different file
systems. If you look at the config file (or read the man page in detail) you'll
see there is a file under /etc/snapper/configs/ for each volume.

There's also, in a parallel directory, a template, to show you how it can be
done.

See also: SNAPPER-CONFIGS(5)

But, as I say, if you use LVM you can use snapper on any file system, ext[234],
xfs, reiserfs, by means of 'thin volumes.
