1. You just come out of the room.
  2. You just come out from the room.

I am confused with "come out of" and the "come out from".

    Both versions are fine. Idiomatically, He just came out of nowhere is far more common than He just came out from nowhere, but you'll also see from that link that He just came from nowhere (without out) is also common. – FumbleFingers Jul 8 '17 at 14:40
  • In what context? "out of the room" simply means that. "out from the room" implies that you went somewhere (You come out from the room and went into the kitchen). Using just also points to some context not in your example. – user3169 Jul 8 '17 at 20:11

Both sentences are grammatically correct, but "out of" sounds good to my American ear.
