Elizabethan and Jacobean playing companies took their name from their sponsor who was a royal or noble person. In 1594, the Burbage brothers with some others (including Shakespeare) obtained the support of Baron Hunsdon, the Lord Chamberlain of England, who became their patron and named their company. The company did really well, and when Queen Elizabeth died in 1603, the new King took over sponsorship of the company, which became the King's Men.

Why did shakespeare change the lord chamberlains men to the kings men?

Shakespeare did not make the change. Even if the company could have the right to change the name, Shakespeare did not have the right to speak for the company--Richard Burbage was its leader not Shakespeare. The name was changed by King James I. When he came to the throne, he took over patronage of the company. When the patron changed, the name changed.

Why did the lord chamberlains theatre change to the kings men theatre in 1594?

It didn't. The Lord Chamberlain's Men was not a theatre. It was a company of actors and other men who put on plays. They were formed in 1594. They took their name from their patron--by law, acting companies of this kind had to have a patron--who was the Lord Chamberlain. In 1603, they got a new patron and a new name, although it was still the same group of actors. Their new patron was King James I, and so their new name was The King's Men. There never was such a thing as the King's Men Theatre.
