Installing Electrical Wiring Inside Walls
There is no limit as to how many Romex wires you can run between two rooms, the method would be the factor.
The path for the Romex wiring must be installed using methods which will protect the wiring from nails and screws used to install sheet rock and other wall coverings.
Drill the holes for the Romex in the center of the wall studs or framing material. If the holes get too close the outside of the studs, then be sure to protect the Romex by using Safety Plates, also know as Nail Plates.
