BTRFS and disk space concerns

The title says all, I like Arch-based distros for the AUR. I see what BTRFS can do but I'm concerned about disk space and another thing I'm doing out of the norm is that I use a RAD 0 for the /home folder.

I had to do a manual migration ad manual setup the RAID 0 array. Will Garuda make this easier? But mainly I'm concerned about space but it could be fine for a great benefit.

TY for your attention

Guess is time to read BTRFS FAQ
